PREDICTIONS FROM AUSTRALIA'S WORLD CUP LEGENDS
SAM KERR - Matildas captain
"You can't go past the USA. They will be up there.
"I would love to see France go as far as us to the final but you can't go past the USA and also Germany.
"My dark horse is Spain. I've watched them play the last few years and they this amazing style of football like Barcelona, the tiki-taka.
"I watched them play Canada last year and they played them off the park. They didn't touch the ball."
JULIE MURRAY - Australia's first captain at the Women's World Cup
"I'm optimistic that Australia will get through to the next round and I think then it depends on who is their next opponent.
"France have put an absolute motza into their team and I've just loved it, the way that the French women play.
"It would be pretty historic if the French men and women could both be World Champs. It would be awesome."
HEATHER GARRIOCK - Three-time World Cup midfielder
"I really think that we won't lose a point in the group stage.
"We'll be first class. I think that the team's buzzing."
KATRINA GORRY - 2019 Matilda and former Asian player of the year
"I think France will do well. They have always been a powerhouse.
"They do play a really exciting brand of football and their men have done so well in their World Cup."
KATE GILL - Former Matildas captain
"Caitlin Foord could be a standout for Australia.
"She looked good against America as a No.10 and that allows her freedom of movement between her and Sam.
"She's dangerous, and she runs at players. If she has a massive tournament, and she stays injury free, then she should be the game changer."
