2017 International Series: Matildas vs Brazil live from Newcastle

The Matildas are ready to fight it out with Brazil tonight in the 2017 International Series. 

The Australian national women's football team is hosting Brazil at McDonald Jones Stadium in the side's first Newcastle appearance since 2000. The FFA is predicting a crowd of more than 14,000 for the second game in Newcastle on Tuesday night.

The Matildas and Brazil have become great rivals. The Matildas knocked Brazil out of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, before Brazil defeated the Matildas at the Olympics. Saturday’s 2-1 win over a near full-strength Brazil in front of 15,000 fans at Penrith has only heated up the competition.
