Westfield Matildas nominated for 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award

The Westfield Matildas have been announced as one of the finalists in the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards!

The Matildas have been nominated in the Favourite Squad category after a superb 12 months for Alen Stajcic's side. 

The other finalists in their category are 5 Seconds of Summer, Bondi Rescue and Parri$ Goebel and The Royal Family.

Votes can be cast here.

The Matildas announced themselves as a genuine powerhouse of World football in 2017 with a series of swashbuckling performances and incredible results. 

Australia claimed the inaugural Tournament of Nations title in America in August following wins over USA (their first ever), Japan and Brazil. 

Record crowds then flocked to see Australia take on Brazil in a two-game friendly series on home soil, with the clash in Penrith officially a sell-out. 

Australia won both fixtures before again attracting big attendances as they thrashed China in two friendlies in Victoria to finish off the year.  

The Matildas are currently in Portugal for the Algarve Cup which kicks off on Thursday.
