Goalkeeper Teagan Micah is relishing in the opportunity of being part of her first full Matildas training camp.
The Redcliffe native was previously called up to the squad during the 2017 Tournament of Nations after Lydia Williams was injured during a match.
It's been quite the journey for the former Queensland Academy of Sport player, who currently plays for the UCLA Bruins.
Micah made her W-League debut for the Brisbane Roar before moving to the Western Sydney Wanderers for the 2015-16 season.
It was also during this time that Micah received calls from Josh Walters, who was a coach at UCLA.
Despite not making her national senior debut yet, the 21-year-old knows what she needs to bring to the squad to have her chance.
"Just intensity and trying to show what I got," Micah said.
"Show that I've been in a good league and working hard so trying my best to earn a spot on the World Cup roster."
Micah has familiar faces around her in the Matildas camp including goalkeeping coach John Gorza, who she has worked with previously.
"John was my first goalkeeper coach since I was 11 so he's had me for a while," she said.
"We have a really good relationship and I know he’s a very talented coach so I’m very proud of him for getting this opportunity as well to get called up so I just have to put in the work now."
The Matildas face the United States on Thursday, April 4 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park (Friday, April 5 12:30pm AEDT) and will be LIVE on FoxSports 503.
