Sam Kerr sets new Westfield Matildas record in Norway win

Westfield Matildas star Sam Kerr was on the scoresheet in Australia's thrilling Algarve Cup win over Norway on Thursday, setting a new national team record in the process. 

The attacker scored her side's third goal in a last gasp 4-3 victory, the seventh consecutive international in which she has found the back of the net. 

Lisa De Vanna played Kerr through on goal with a delightful through-ball before the Perth Glory striker calmly slotted the ball past the Norwegian keeper. 

Kerr's achievement eclipses the previous record help by Matildas legend Sarah Walsh (six). 

Starting with her first-half hat-trick in the 4-2 win over Japan at the 2017 Tournament of Nations, Kerr has now scored 12 goals in her last seven matches for her country.

She will get the chance to further extend the record when Australia plays hosts Portugal in their second Algarve Cup match at 2am on Saturday (AEDT).
