Rio Spotlight: The Matildas

Can the Matildas make history and win Australia's first Olympic football medal?

We have seen what she can do in the W-League and on an international scale, but what is it about goalkeeper Lydia Williams that we still need to know? We sent Leah Cwikel on a mission to find out.
The Matildas are less than three weeks from their opening Olympic match. We take a virtual tour of their preparations, thanks to the squad’s immaculately curated Instagram accounts.
We catch up with Matildas star Steph Catley to talk Olympics, inspiration, and her dog Bentley.
For the first time in 12 years a Matildas squad has been selected for an Olympic Games. The 18 player roster is the strongest Australia has produced in this generation.
When it comes to the Matildas team there a many figures who quietly and professionally perform their duties in the background without fanfare.
