After convincing wins over powerhouse Japan and Vietnam, the Matildas now face Korea LIVE Friday 9.30pm AEDT on 7mate and PLUS7 Live on their road to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Australians are supporting our women’s football team in droves, with a combined peak audience of 305,000 watching our demolition of Vietnam 9-0, in addition to the combined peak audience of 331,000 on Monday against Japan.

Kyah Simon was the star of the show for the Matildas last night completing a hat trick before half time, before all three substitutes Clare Polkinghorne, Michelle Heyman and Ashleigh Sykes slotted home goals. Emily Van Egmond, Alanna Kennedy and Emily Gielnik also hit the scoreboard to complete the thrashing of Vietnam.

The Matildas will also play DPR Korea (Monday 7 March, 9.30pm AEDT) and China (Wednesday 9 March, 9.30pm AEDT) all on 7mate and PLUS7 Live with the top two teams advancing to represent the Asian Football Confederation at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

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