“I will be working alongside some amazing talent, and talent that have been there before and know what it’s like to be a part of a national team.

“I’m really looking forward to a month of non-stop football, every game live and following each team’s journey, especially our golden girls the Matildas."

Australia are among the favourites for the Women's World Cup after their impressive showing at the Cup of Nations and have been drawn in Group C alongside Brazil, Italy and Jamaica.
