Foord, Catley and Cooney-Cross Called Up To Matildas Olympic Squad

Arsenal’s Steph Catley, Caitlin Foord and Kyra Cooney-Cross have all been called into the 18-player Australia squad for the Olympic Games in Paris.

With Sam Kerr injured, Catley will captain her country at the games in France, where they are in a group with Germany, USA and Zambia.

Given all three players are regular starters, it’s not a surprise that all have been called into the squad, even given the 18 player size. However, Caitlin Foord hobbled out of their friendly win over China on Friday with a tight hamstring. But with the first game against Germany not until 25 July, it seems like that isn’t a significant injury.

Emily Fox (USA), Cloe Lacasse (Canada) and Laia Codina (Spain) are all likely to represent their countries at the games this summer too.

The injury to Foord is a worry, but congratulations to our Vegemighty trio.
Assist from Catley, Cloe Lacasse scored for Canada, too. I’m really looking forward to the Olympics. Best of luck to all our players.

Looking forward to the Olympics too – viewing times should be easier than Tokyo. I really liked watching Team GB in Tokyo, where our Kim Little was the stand out player for GB. Houghton was not fully fit, which let us down crucially in the QF exit.

But I guess we should be supporting Oz this time round!
