FIFA Womens World Cup
The Matildas have again created history. Australia (Men or Women) have never kept a clean sheet at a World Cup Finals. This all changed with the 2-0 win over Nigeria. The feat was acheived again a week later when the Matildas created their second piece of history by beating Brazil 1-0 in the round of 16 knock out game.
Once again an Australian team (Men or Women) had never won a knock game at a FIFA World Cup.

The Matildas next big event is the Rio Olympic Games in August 2016
