Soaring demand for Matildas tickets has prompted Football Australia to move a crucial Olympic qualifier in October to a larger stadium as interest in the World Cup semi-finalists shows no sign of abating.

Tony Gustavsson’s side are due to play three matches in Perth as part of the qualifying tournament for the Games in Paris next year. They have been drawn in Group A alongside the Philippines, Iran and Taiwan.

The first women to represent England at an international football tournament have been honoured with a blue plaque.
The FA and Luton Heritage Society unveiled it at Crawley Green Recreation Ground, which was home to the Chiltern Valley Ladies.
It honours the team, as well as the British Independents - which played between 1967 and 1972 - and founders Harry and June Batt.
The 1971 World Cup captain, Carol Wilson, said "it means the world".
Women's football was banned until 1970, when the Women's Football Association (WFA) persuaded the FA to overturn it.
Luton bus driver Harry Batt had defied the ban and formed teams to represent England in overseas tournaments after seeing how popular women's football was in other countries.

England goalkeeper Mary Earps says she “is not quite there yet” on feeling proud of her World Cup performance, following the Lionesses’ defeat against Spain in last month’s final.

‘‘You know deep down somewhere in your body that it’s very hard to get to a World Cup final, and it’s something that people only dream of.’’

Earps says that she has stopped reliving that night in Sydney. ‘‘I’m not so much replaying it now’’, she told ITV News. ‘‘I think that would be a brutal form of therapy.’’

The England and Manchester revealed she forced herself to smile when she was presented with the FIFA Golden Glove - an award given to the tournament’s best goalkeeper - in the minutes after the final whistle.

Guernsey footballer Maya Le Tissier has rejoined her England Lioness team mates.

The Sarnian has been named in the squad who are preparing for this month's UEFA Women's Nations League campaign.

It comes just months after the 21-year-old missed out on a World Cup spot, where the Lionesses made it to the final in Australia before narrowly missing out on glory to Spain.

Speaking on Maya and teammate Lucy Staniforth's return to the squad, Lioness boss Sarina Wiegman said: "They did really well and of course they went with the team when we arrived in Australia.

Sarina Wiegman has said she is “very worried” about the state of the international calendar, with England players back in camp in order to prepare for two Nations League games less than a month after their World Cup final defeat against Spain.

“I was worried before the World Cup, and we knew it was a short turnaround. We really have to get connected with Fifa and Uefa to make that better,” Wiegman said.
