The Commonwealth Bank Matildas have assembled in Dublin, Ireland as they look ahead to the task of the Republic of Ireland on 22 September 2021 at Tallaght Stadium.
For defender Jenna McCormick, the training camp marks a return to the national team after an 18 month absence.
“A lot can happen in 18 months,” said McCormick. “I feel like I have ridden the rollercoaster of football; the highs, the lows and everything in between.”
“It has been challenging. It has been good, it has been bad, it has been the entire spectrum of football emotions. Fast forward to now, it’s a different story. I am really happy where I am in Denmark and just back to loving my football.”
At the other end of the spectrum, midfielder Chloe Logarzo returns to the camp following a short break at the conclusion of the team’s intense Tokyo campaign. Recently earning her 50th cap for Australia, Logarzo is currently playing her club football in the United States with Kansas City.
“My time in KC has been really good. It’s really nice to be back in the US [as] it’s quite comfortable for me,” she said.
“It’s definitely where I want to be for my personal self. I think it’s definitely what makes me grow as a player, on and off the field.”
Coverage of the Commonwealth Bank Matildas taking on the Republic of Ireland match will commence at 3.30am AEST on Wednesday, 22 September 2021, live and free on 10 and simulcast on 10 Play. Kick-off is at 4am AEST.
