Alleway selected in Matildas squad


Melbourne Victory’s newest W-League signing has been named in the Westfield Matildas squad to take on Brazil in September.

Laura Alleway could make her 50th appearance for the Matildas if she is selected for either game on the 16th or 19th of September.

Matildas head coach Alen Stajcic can’t wait to play on home soil.

“There is a great buzz within this squad to come home and play and perform in front of large home crowds in Penrith and Newcastle,” Stajcic said. “It will be a privilege to host Brazil and the team can’t wait for the matches.”

“Our (Westfield Matildas) staff are in contact with the players daily and we have access to a lot of footage of the girls playing abroad, and it has been fantastic to see so many of our girls performing consistently at a high level.”
