- ‘No question whatsoever,’ says coach Tony Gustavsson
- Australia’s captain set for final assessment by medical team
Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson said he will have no hesitation starting striker Sam Kerr if she is fit, as the Matildas prepare for their World Cup quarter-final encounter with France on Saturday.
The team’s captain, Kerr, suffered a calf injury on the eve of the tournament and only returned in the final minutes of the Matildas’ round of 16 victory over Denmark. Given the success of Australia’s attacking quartet at the World Cup to date, there had been speculation over whether Kerr would start in the quarter-final.
