But for the cool-headed Ibini, facing off against some of the best footballers in the world is no big deal. She has total faith that her team have got what it takes to get the job done.

“Perth’s front three are definitely their strongest point, but we’re not too worried about that,” she said.

“All over the park, we’re a really strong team so we’re just focusing on playing our own game. As long we stick together and have belief in each other, we will get the win.”

Racking up the most tackles among the forwards of her team, 18 touches inside the opposition’s box and a 75 percent shooting accuracy, the Westfield Sports High alumni has plenty of reason to feel confident heading into the final.

Her cool, calm and collected approach could be the difference Sydney FC needs to bring home the trophy.

As for what’s next for Ibini, she’s just taking things as they come.

“Once the W-League season wraps up, I’ll probably head back to the NPL and play another season with the North West Sydney Koalas,” she said.
