SYDNEY (3 December 2023) – Australia women’s national team head coach Tony Gustavsson has defended the team’s 5-0 loss to Canada in a friendly last night, saying ‘that the long-term plan was more important than the short-term result.’

It was the Matildas’ heaviest defeat in 17 months with Gustavsson utilising a highly experimental side against the Olympic champions.

The goalscorers for Canada were Nichelle Prince (two goals), Cloé Lacasse, Simi Awujo and Adriana Leon.
