Who might start for the Westfield Matildas on Wednesday night?

Tomorrow Australia gets to see the Westfield Matildas play again!

The team will wrap their sensational year with two internationals against China this week. 

How might Australia line up in the first of these games?

We had a go at predicting a possible starting side that coach Alen Stajcic might go with on Wednesday night at AAMI Park. 


Mackenzie Arnold

The Brisbane Roar stopper is in line to earn her 14th cap with number one Lydia Williams expected to arrive late into camp.

Ellie Carpenter

The 17-year-old has started four of the last five internationals and will look to continue the impressive start to her international career.

Stephanie Catley

Having played every minute of the Matildas' nine games this year, the indefatigable Melbourne City defender is a cornerstone of Australia's backline.

Westfield Matildas star Steph Catley has been nominated for the best defender award.


Alanna Kennedy

The 22-year-old already has 57 international caps and should add to those over the next week as she continues to show why she's one of the best defenders in the world.

Caitlin Foord

Still only 22, the Japan-based utility is another to have played regularly for Australia this year with her pace and power. A regular starter and for good reason.

Chloe Logarzo

The Sydney FC midfielder may well get the nod and earn her 19th international cap. She brings a hard edge to midfield and works extremely hard for the team.

Katrina-Lee Gorry

The Brisbane Roar midfielder has been a fixture in Alen Stajcic's side this year. She provides the vision and technique that can open up defences.

Emily van Egmond

The Newcastle Jets midfielder is another who has been practically ever-present for Australia in 2017. And her form as skipper at the Jets has been brilliant so far this Westfield W-League season. 

Emily Van Egmond says the Westfield Matildas are relishing the opportunity to showcase their ‘exciting’ brand of football.


Elise Kellond-Knight

The vastly experienced German-based midfielder is always one of the first names on the Westfield Matildas’ team-sheet. She'll look to create and break down attacks.

Forward line

Lisa De Vanna

Brings 126 games of international experience and still capable of spectacular goals. She may not play a full game, but she's likely to make an impact.

Samantha Kerr

Australia's golden girl from Glory is set to lead the line and look to add to her 15 international goals, seven of which have come this year.
