Matildas Squad announced for World Cup

Australia coach Alen Stajcic on Tuesday named veteran players Melissa Hudson and Lisa De Vanna alongside a host of young attacking stars his 23-player squad for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, to be held in Canada from 6 June to 5 July.

Since his appointment, Stajcic's intent has been for the Matildas to develop an exciting, attacking style of football, chossing a squad he said is capable of competing on the biggest stage in women's football.

"We have selected a positive squad with players that have a strong belief that they can go into any game and win," Stajcic said.

"Over the course of the last four months the composition of this final squad has changed every week, but as always I believe 'players pick themselves' and the 23 players that have been selected thoroughly deserve to be in this squad and I am confident they will represent their country with distinction.

"The emphasis since we came together in January has been on expressing our Australian culture and the things this country is renowned to bring to any sporting contest, things like positivity, backing yourself and really taking it up to the opposition.

"We want to pride ourselves on a lot of these attributes that Australian teams have had for a long time, so it is about having that focus in this team and a belief that on any given day against any opponent we can come out and win.
