Sam Kerr - Number 20

We’re sure this name sounds familiar? One of Australia’s favourite sportswomen. Kerr, the captain of the Matildas, has really helped and pushed the team to stardom.

Kerr has had many moments of success, scoring four goals against Jamaica at the Women’s World Cup - putting on a show stopper performance for the crowd and the fans watching at home.

The fan favourite number 20 has become a household name. Signed to Chelsea in The FAWSL, she has paved the way for Australia’s Matildas to transition over to European clubs.

Her drive and passion for the team to succeed and the belief she has in her teammates is truly something special. She continuously shocks the world with her amazing football skills and is definitely one of the best players to ever walk the field.

These are just five of the amazing Matildas in the current squad who have really caught our eye over the past year. It isn’t just these individuals who play a key role in the team, it is obviously many more as well.

But these women are paving the way for Australian football and we cannot wait to see the next amazing highlights that come from them in the near future.
