Australia Women's Team profile: key players, full squad list, coach for 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

May 16, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Australia will be hoping to improve on past performances from prior World Cups. Will they be able to finally clear the quarter-finals hurdle, though?

What is Australia's history in the FIFA Women's World Cup?

Although they failed to qualify for the inaugural FIFA Women's World Cup in 1991, Australia have more than made up for it by making sure they have featured at every single tournament since. The Matildas have also steadily improved over the years, as in their first three competitions, they exited during the group stages, but in their last three made it beyond the round of 16. Still, they have yet to get past the quarter-finals hurdle, and certainly will be hoping to go one step further this summer in France. 

What is Australia's group at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Australia are in Group C. For more information and analysis on the SWNT's Last 16 qualification chances, check out Group C: Australia, Brazil, Italy, Jamaica - 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup teams.

What is Australia's full squad list for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Goalkeepers: Lydia Williams, Teagan Micah, Mackenzie Arnold 

Defenders: Gema Simon, Clare Polkinghorne, Laura Alleway, Steph Catley, Alanna Kennedy, Ellie Carpenter, Teigen Allen

Midfielders: Aivi Luik, Chloe Logarzo, Elise Kellond-Knight, Emily van Egmond, Tameka Yallop, Katrina Gorry, Amy Harrison

Forwards: Caitlin Foord, Lisa de Vanna, Emily Gielnik, Hayley Raso, Mary Fowler, Sam Kerr

Who are the key players to watch for Australia at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Skipper Sam Kerr and veteran attacker Lisa De Vanna will be two of the notable players who will be helping Australia try to go as far in the upcoming competition this summer. Kerr, who plays her club football for Chicago Red Stars in the WSL, was short-listed for the the Best FIFA Women's Player of the Year in 2018 and had a very impressive 2017/2018 season as she netted in seven straight games for the Matildas.

Meanwhile, De Vanna, who despite her small stature (she stands at just 1.56 m or 5 feet 1 inch) is well known for her pace and power, is currently Australia's all-time top goal-scorer for the women's side. This will be her fourth World Cup after making her debut back at the 2007 edition in China, and having scored four alone in 2007 (she only netted once in 2011 and 2015) she certainly will hope to have a strong performance in what could be her last World Cup this summer.

Who is Australia's coach?

Former striker Ante Milicic took over as coach for the Matildas in February 2019 from predecessor Alen Stajcic, who had helped guide the side through qualifying for the upcoming tournament in France. Milicic's previous jobs includes serving as an assistant for the Socceroos during the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, so he has experience at these kind of tournaments - but this will be unexplored waters as it's a women's competition and he will be the man in charge of the team rather than acting as second in command.
