The last meeting between Portugal and Australia was also on the hosts’ home turf at the 2018 Algarve Cup in Albufeira. CommBank Matildas head coach Tony Gustavsson said:

“We will be meeting Portugal at a time they will be in some of their strongest form with the European Championships just around the corner. Matches against Portugal have always been tight encounters in the past, and we are anticipating they will once again be a fierce competitor next month.”

“These two fixtures against strong nations such as Spain and Portugal will pose another new set of questions for us to answer as we continue to lay the foundations and embed the fundamentals of our team play.

“Taking on teams in their final preparations for a major championship will give us an additional occasion to work on developing our chemistry and combinations at high intensity.”
