In 2010 Australia unexpectedly captured the Women's Asian Cup title.  It was Australia's first title in the Asian Football Confederation at any level since they joined the AFC in 2005.

Four years on it still remains our only piece of silverware.

Matildas striker Sarah Walsh was a part of that 23 player squad to make history and as an analyst for Fox Sports, Walsh is back at the tournament commentating on the Matildas run to the 2014 final.

Along the way Australia has encountered names familiar teams.  None more familiar than final opponent Japan who the Matildas defeated in the semi finals four years ago in a famous back-to-the-wall victory.

We had a chat to Walsh about that history making two weeks in China.
