Matildas set to host the United States

The Matildas are set to welcome world champions the United States in two matches later this month.


The fixtures to be played at Sydney's Olympic stadium on November 27 and Newcastle's McDonald Jones Stadium on November 30 will be the USA's first visit to Australia in 21 years.


The USA games come hot on the heels of the recent clashes with traditional rivals Brazil, which saw the Matildas win the first match and draw the second.


Coach Tony Gustavsson believes the team are getting better with every game they play with each other.


"This is a vital and final opportunity to see the players against an extremely high-quality nation before we select the final squad for the AFC Women's Asian Cup," Gustavsson said.
