The Matildas have two more matches before their World Cup campaign kicks off against Italy on June 9 and a seemingly reinvigorated squad under Ante Milicic are already looking forward towards the end goal.

"It's always nice to get wins together but you have to back it up game after game going into major tournaments," Polkinghorne said.

"It's nice to score some goals and to only give away one goal from a set piece was also really pleasing.

"We've got a lot to work on, we were a bit sloppy in our passes and gave away a lot of ball. We're definitely creating a lot of opportunities and that's the pleasing thing - we can always work on the detail in the final third."

After a dominant, albeit slightly defensively shaky opener in Milcic's 2-0 debut win against New Zealand, the Matildas were in full attacking flight against South Korea in Brisbane, rounding out 4-1 winners.

While the personal highlight for the experienced defender and Brisbane Roar legend was playing in her hometown, she also made special mention of Emily Gielnik's 82nd minute rocket which sealed the win.

"Gielnik's got a very powerful strike and when she cuts in on that right foot you know she's going to get in on target," she said.

"It was a good performance, it's always great to play in Australia but when it's in your hometown it's particularly special.

"In front of my family and friends, it doesn't get much better."
