Australia Head Coach Alen Stajcic names 32-player squad for training camp

Australia Westfield Matildas Head Coach Alen Stajcic has selected 32-players to participate in a training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra which will be held next year from 12 – 15 January

The training camp will play a crucial role in Australia’s preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015.

Players will have the opportunity to impress Head Coach Alen Stajcic and earn a place in his World Cup team selection.

Stajcic commented on FootballAustralia: “I’ve had a good look at all the players throughout the Westfield W-League season and I am happy with the group of players that I have selected for this camp, there is a balance of youth and experience in the squad and it will be a good starting point for our intense preparation period. This is by no means a final squad as there are number of players returning from injury that are still in contention for selection. It’s now up to the players to make the step up and show the coaching staff why they deserve to go to the World Cup,”

Australia were drawn in Group D of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 alongside USA, Sweden and Nigeria.

    Australia have a very tough Group at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015!
    USA would be considered the favourites but their form is a little off at the moment and Australia have always been tough opponents against them. I think Nigeria and Sweden will be equally tough opposition, I am struggling to predict will advance from Group D.
