Her 2018 so far:
One of the youngest players in the squad, Chidiac heads to her third international tournament of 2018 as a member of the Westfield Matildas squad.
The teenager started twice at the AFC Women's Asian Cup on the back of a promising string of displays at the 2018 Algarve Cup in Portugal.
Chidiac opened her international account in a 5-0 friendly win over Thailand between the two tournaments to illustrate a growing readiness to play at the top level.
Stajcic's faith in the newly confirmed Atletico Madrid playmaker has been apparent throughout the year to date and her importance to the team could grow further at the Tournament of Nations.
Now capped 10 times, her transition to international football has been aided by a sure footing at club level.
Chidiac has already completed four full seasons in the Westfield W-League, making 11 appearances and netting once from the spot against Sydney FC in the most recent campaign.
The youngster heads into the Tournament of Nations having played for the Westfield Young Matildas at the AFF Women's Championship in Indonesia, helping the team to secure second place.
