Amy Harrison - 7

Looked creative and determined. Plenty of class from the new Wanderers signing.

Substituted after 65 minutes after putting in a solid shift.

Emily Gielnik - 8

A beautiful finish to beat the Chile keeper Natalia Campos at her near post in the 22nd minute. Before that it was a powerful and brilliant run to get herself into position.

Also set up Carpenter three minutes later with a neat one two. Delivered plenty of run and dangerous balls into the box, clever balls to get past and over opponent.

Also worked hard in defence. Substituted in the 62nd minute but did her job very well.

Caitlin Foord - 8

Always involved in the game especially in attack. Nice ball to Kerr which led to the penalty in the first half.

Looked threatening and was a nice link up player to the Matildas forwards. A very solid game from the classy and reliable midfielder.

Sam Kerr - 7

We know how Kerr can score goals…but how about the neat assist to Gielnik? All class!

Used her experience to win a penalty right before halftime after cleverly dinking the ball away from Campos and drawing the foul. However she missed the penalty after an excellent save from Campos, bringing back bad memories from the World Cup.

Hit the cross bar in the 48th minute after receiving a great ball from Catley.


Jenna McCormick -6.5

Came on in the second half much to the delight of her home crowd. Did her job in defence and looked solid throughout.

Lucky not to be booked for an attempted hip and shoulder in the Chile box but her physicality is one of her strengths.

Hayley Raso - 6

62nd minute sub, did a good job with limited game time.

Emily van Egmond – 6

65th minute sub. She was involved when she came on but with only a quarter of the game to make an impact, she didn’t have much opportunity.

Aivi Luik  - 6

75th minute sub.

Nice passes which are her strength but had little time to do a lot.

Emma Checker  - 6

76th minute sub. Didn’t have much time to make an impact.
