2. Attacking combinations are endless

At the other end of the field, Milicic will have more of an issue choosing which combination to start with. The six forwards currently in the squad all work well with each other no matter who is playing.

While creating chances has never been a concern (converting them yes), against Korea Republic, the way the Matildas created them was fantastic to watch. It was a fluid motion from one area of the pitch to another, it was also quick too, which caught the defenders off guard. 

The Matildas have speed in the front so it's worthwhile using it.

Not only that but the ability of Emily Gielnik to play on both left and right sides is the kind of versatility needed for a World Cup. Also can't forget Hayley Raso who is able to beat defenders in a 1-on-1 like it's nothing, she makes it look easy. 

It's an interesting situation of Milicic with Kyah Simon and Chloe Logarzo still on the sidelines through injury.  

3. Decision making on the ball

It's another area that was exposed by Korea Republic on Sunday night. Just like they did during the 2018 Asian Cup group match against the Matildas, they rarely let the Australians have space when they were on the ball. 

The Matildas were able to get out of those pressure building moments most of the time by passing it back and trying to re-build the attack again as the Brisbane Roar A-League team did under Ange Postecoglou. However, there were moments where they were caught out because they simply held the ball for too long or when they did pass it found the feet of an opposing player. 

It may be just the tactics Korea Republic used to restrict the Matildas knowing it worked last time they faced each other, however, it will certainly be something that is looked at by the Matildas coaching staff. 

Australia's decision making will only improve once they get use to Milicic style of play.
