Is Monday the day we see the return of Sam Kerr? That is the query. So far on this event, the co-host nation Australia has been with out its high star — and has barely held on, advancing with a giant victory in a must-win group stage match over Canada. Kerr urged she was game-ready on Sunday, telling reporters: “I’m really excited. I will play.” After New Zealand exited the World Cup within the group stage, Australia has to win to hold at the very least one host nation in rivalry.
With Kerr anticipated to return to the lineup, the Matildas can be trying to present the complete breadth of their potential. The Australians will want Kerr’s hanging energy — Denmark held England to a single purpose, 1-0, within the Danes’ lone lack of the group stage.
In 2019, Australia was ousted within the spherical of 16 by Norway in a penalty shootout. Denmark hasn’t certified for a World Cup since 2007, and is right here to benefit from it.
“This is do or die now,” stated Australia goaltender Mackenzie Arnold.
