The Matildas will start their quest to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games against Japan live on 7mate from 9.30pm AEDT Monday.

The Australian women captured the hearts of the nation with their deeds at last year’s World Cup, when they became the first Australian team to win a knockout stage at a World Cup when they beat Brazil 1-0.

It was the Japanese who knocked the Australians out of the World Cup with a late goal in the quarter finals, so the Matildas will be keen to atone for the loss.

The Matildas will also play Vietnam (2 March), Korea Republic (4 March), DPR Korea (7 March) and China (9 March) with the top two teams advancing to represent the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Hosted by Jason Richardson, with Brenton Speed calling all the action and former Matildas captain Melissa Barbieri in expert commentary.
