Aussie slang, their favourite teammates and defending: Alanna Kennedy and Shelina Zadorsky paired up once again

Friends for five years, Alanna Kennedy and Shelina Zadorsky were set to face each other on the other side of the pitch for only the second time in their careers.  

However, the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the scheduled April 14 match between Canada and the Westfield Matildas at the site of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 Final - BC Place. 

The postponement didn't stop Kennedy and Zadorsky missing a chance to catch up as they went live on Instagram.
