The 40th anniversary of Matildas' first match at Matxinsal was against New Zealand.
The initial minute options were better than home ones, but these options would not be capitalized.
Matildas was able to maintain the pressure of the Football Ferns defensive line, and Sam Kerr won a foul on the box. However, the strikes of Elise Kellond-Knight have risen.
Several times they were behind the defense of Matildas of Kiwi with Sarah Gregorius, pushing the ball, but Lydia Williams passed by or flagged.
But the stutter was stopped, after finishing Emily Gielnik's box.

However, if you want to win Matildas, you can do two things: 1. Find that final touch and; 2. Finish. These were two elements that were missing, but it is not a new problem, but what should be considered before the World Cup.
In the meantime, the player from New Zealand left the ball ahead of time. After passing Matildas defensively, he seemed to be strolling, especially his life and well-off.
As the second half began, it was the first. Australia began to pressure Kiwi defense but could not finish its options.
He left the door open to New Zealand, but they did not have many opportunities. Ferns had the opportunity to increase the game level, when he went against Gregorius Williams, but Williams had a great deal of time.
Amy Harrison, Teresa Polias, Lisa De Vanna, and Laura Alleway had many changes in the bank.
In the second minute, the Milicic tactic has been the most interesting alternative, but it goes directly to all sides.
Gielnik made Hayley Raso the way and the fresh legs raised the team. He was only three minutes behind the Brisbane Roar flying network to get to third international third goal.

For the football ferns, there was not much, because the ball that was being worked in the first half was either a player or not.
