This is a test

With the AFC Women’s Asian Cup just around the corner, the Westfield Matildas play a crucial pre-tournament friendly against Thailand at nib Stadium on Monday.

In their first-ever international fixture in Perth, a huge crowd is expected to be on hand to give Alen Stajcic’s side a huge send-off before they head to Jordan.

After a fourth-place finish at the recent Algarve Cup, the Westfield Matildas will hope to record a confidence-boosting win before they chase continental glory.

But they won’t find it easy against a gritty Thai outfit looking to cause a boilover in the west.
