The Matildas came out in force to thank the Campbelltown crowd for getting them through another match in tough conditions (their second in a few days) in sterling fashion.

Most of the praise was directed at a certain maiden hat-trick hero, who insisted that she didn't care as long as the team won...but they always say that, don't they?

We're not surprised she was getting praise - how about this Zidane-like effort from van Egmond?

But Karly Roestbakken, despite not getting on the scoresheet, perhaps boasted the proudest praise of all.

Caitlin Foord had a tough night in front of goal, rifling a couple of beauties off the woodwork. But she wasn't letting it get to her.

There were also a few choice fan moments to choose from. The Matildas version of WAGS, perhaps?

Oh, and here's one that's right up our alley.
