Gallery: Inside Westfield Matildas training ahead of China challenge

The Westfield Matildas were mixing it up in camp in Sydney this week to prepare for next month’s 2020 AFC Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Back together for the first time since November’s friendlies against Chile, coach Ante Milicic has put his side through a couple of intense sessions to get them ready for the upcoming trip to China.

Australia need to finish in the top two of their group when they take on Chinese Taipei, Thailand and the host nation from February 3-9 in Nanjing.

Enjoy some behind-the-scenes shots of the Matildas training on the pitch and in the gym – and enjoying a high tea with supporters – ahead of a huge few weeks for the national team.
