1. The Matildas are the epitome of #squadgoals

2. Just look how much fun they have

3. Even in the dreaded ice bath

4. Seriously, who enjoys the ice bath that much?

5. There’s a ton of tight friendships within the group

6. And they support each other with everything they do

7. They’re pretty much a big family that miss each other when they’re apart

8. They all love a group selfie

9. #mygirls? Swoon

10. When they’re playing club football overseas, they still stick together

11. And make a beeline for each other after club games

12. Because they’ve always got each other’s back

13. And most important? They’re proud to play with each other, a trait that starts from the top

14. Let’s hope we see them poppin’ bottles come August. If nothing else but for the phenomenal Instagram pics of the celebrations.

You can check out the Matildas in action during their farewell tour, ahead of their Rio campaign.
