Check out the seven midfielders who are on the plane to France.

Aivi Luik

Club: Levante (Primera División)
Birthday: 18/03/1985
Hometown: Perth
Caps: 21
Previous World Cups: None
Did you know: She is one of the most travelled Matildas having played in the USA, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden and Spain.

After being in and around the Matildas for the last 18 months, including earning a spot in the AFC Women's Asian Cup team, Luik seems to have become a favourite in the defensive midfield.

The 34-year-old had a great season with Spanish Levante as they finished third-place.

Despite her lack of World Cup experience, she has experienced the big stages before after being part of the side that won the 2010 AFC Women's Asian Cup in China.

Chloe Logarzo

Junior club: Carlineford Redbacks
Club: Sydney FC (W-League) and Washington Spirit (NWSL)
Birthday: 22/12/1994
Hometown: Sydney
Caps: 37
Previous World Cups: None
Did you know: She didn’t play elite level until she was older because she wasn’t big enough or strong enough.

The 24-year-old was part of the W-League Championship-winning Sydney FC, even scoring a goal as the team claimed their fifth piece of silverware.

However, an ankle injury picked up in the Grand Final prevented her from linking up with the Matildas and new coach Ante Milicic for the Cup of Nations and again for the USA friendly.

After recovering, Logarzo made her debut for the Washington Spirit in early May off the bench. Last weekend in her sides win over Sky Blue FC, she provided the pass to help create the goal.
