Emily van Egmond began playing football at the age of five, taking her twin brother’s place in a local team that their father, former Socceroo, Gary van Egmond, had signed him up for.
She debuted for the Matildas at just 16 in 2010 and attended the FIFA Women’s World Cup the following year in Germany. Van Egmond has played professionally since 2009 and has gained a wealth of experience over the course of her career, having played in Australia, Denmark, Germany, England, and most recently America, where she currently plays club football for San Diego Wave in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Van Egmond is a familiar face to many Matildas fans, having appeared 127 times for Australia internationally, and scoring 30 times.
As a player she is known for her intelligence on the pitch, pulling the strings either from deep in the defensive side of the middle of the park to begin an attacking sequence, or putting the ball in its final position before hitting the back of the net.
The Newcastle native has attended the last three World Cups with the Matildas and has been a key part in the team’s developing success on the world stage.
