Watch Western United take on the Young Matildas in Werribee

Western United A-League Women

Western United’s table-topping Liberty A-League Women side will meet the CommBank Young Matildas in a friendly on Monday morning.

The match will kick off at 10am AEDT at Galvin Park in Werribee as part of the Young Matildas’ training camp in partnership with Wyndham City Council.

Fans will be able to attend the exhibition free of charge to get a glimpse of their Western United heroes and of some of the best young talents in Australian women’s football.

With the Liberty A-League taking a week off for the FIFA international window, this will give Mark Torcaso’s United side the perfect opportunity to remain fine-tuned ahead of the final five matches of the home and away season.

There will be a familiar face on the other side of the pitch with Kahli Johnson set to line up against United in the green and gold.

United’s No.10 has been a regular under Leah Blayney in the Young Matildas was a key part of both the qualification phase and the campaign proper for last year’s FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

Johnson has played in all but one of United’s matches in the Liberty A-League so far and made a game-changing substitute cameo last time out against Melbourne City, winning a penalty which Sydney Cummings converted to win the match.

The winger, who turned 19 on Saturday, will be one of three United players that won’t suit up in the Green and Black with Jaclyn Sawicki and Tyla Jay Vlajnic also away on international duty with the Philippines and Serbia respectively.

Torcaso will give opportunities to some of United’s train-on players to impress as well, adding to the total of talented young players set to be on show.
