Her 2018 so far:
Simon started all 14 fixtures for Melbourne City in the 2017/18 season as Patrick Kisnorbo’s side claimed back to back Westfield W-League Championships.
She contributed two goals and five assists to the Melbourne cause throughout the year but her campaign was somewhat soured by a hamstring injury picked up in City's Grand Final win.
That would rule Simon out of participating in the Westfield Matildas’ Algrave Cup campaign, but she made two starts and five appearances in total at the AFC Asian Cup, offering a return of two assists and one goal.
Following the dissolution of the Boston Breakers ahead of the 2018 NWSL season, Simon joined Houston Dash in February and netted her first goal in a 1-1 draw with Portland Thorns on 9 May.
In total, she’s scored eight goals in eight appearances for the Dash – who currently are seventh on the table.
One of the most experienced and reliable components of the Westfield Matildas' squad, Simon has scored 24 goals in 81 matches for Australia, and her propensity as a big-game player will no doubt come to the fore as the side defend their Tournament of Nations crown.
