Caitlin Foord has been named in her fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup squad, looking to add to her appearances at the major tournament.
This will be the forward’s fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup, after bursting onto the scene at the 2011 edition of the tournament and picking up the Best Young Player of the Tournament award. Foord scored her first goal at a FIFA Women’s World Cup at the 2019 edition of the tournament, inspiring Australia’s comeback in their 3-2 win over Brazil.
Since that game in France, Foord has gone on to star in the Women’s Super League with Arsenal, most recently helping the Gunners claim the Continental Cup. Her fine club form has translated into her international performance, scoring back-to-back braces against Denmark and Sweden.
Foord will be looking towards Australia’s opening game of the tournament against the Republic of Ireland, coming up against Arsenal teammate Katie McCabe and aiming to play in front of a capacity crowd in her hometown.
