Sam Kerr is an inspiration in virtually every way imaginable. She finishes off our series, celebrating each individual Matilda’s most amazing, amusing and important highlights.
Sam Kerr : a park in Perth, 2018
It wasn’t an English cup final or a World Cup and the result did not matter, but Sam Kerr playing in a park game with some kids has to rank as a fan favourite moment from the Matildas captain.
It’s a fantastic occasion, captured on camera after a group of young kids knocked on the superstar’s door and asked her to come out and play.
When the W-League's marquee player agreed it was both a throwback to yesteryear when legends like Bobby Charlton were pictured playing with the neighbourhood children and a glimpse into what the future holds with young boys and girls increasingly idolising the W-League and Matildas stars.
Kerr’s record show why she’s a star this showed why she’s admired.
