Australia’s Matildas are through to the FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinals after recording a 2-0 victory over Denmark at Stadium Australia in Sydney.

Caitlin Foord scored on the half-hour mark to settle Australia’s nerves after a bright start from Denmark, led principally by Pernille Harder.

Hayley Raso made sure of the victory with a powerful finish mid-way through the second half.

In another huge boost for the Matildas, Sam Kerr also returned to playing action from a calf injury, coming off the bench at the end of the match to the delight of the capacity crowd of 75,784.

The Matildas have now set up a quarterfinal clash with either Morocco or France in Brisbane, Queensland on Saturday.
