Sydney FC Star Cortnee Vine Eyes Olympic Dream After Matildas Call-Up

Sydney FC Star Cortnee Vine Eyes Childhood Dream of Representing Australia at Paris Olympics

Sydney FC star Cortnee Vine is aiming to impress in the upcoming CommBank Matildas squad as she eyes a spot in Australia’s Olympic team. The 25-year-old, who last represented her country in November, has been in excellent form for Sydney FC in the Liberty A-League with nine goals and five assists this season.

Vine expressed her excitement about the opportunity to join the Matildas squad for the friendly against Mexico in the United States. She sees this as a chance to showcase her skills and push for a spot in the Olympic team, fulfilling a childhood dream she has harbored since she was nine years old.

As Sydney FC aims for a fourth consecutive Liberty A-League Premiership, Vine believes a strong end to the season will not only help her team create history but also boost her chances of Olympic selection. She remains focused on performing well in the club matches to prove her worth for the national team.

Apart from her domestic commitments, Vine is also looking forward to the historic clash between an A-League All Stars women’s team and Arsenal FC in May. She sees this as a fantastic opportunity for Australian players to test themselves against top opposition and a rare chance for fans to witness world-class football on home soil.

If selected for the All Stars game, Vine will potentially face off against her CommBank Matildas teammates who represent Arsenal. Despite the friendly competition, Vine is eager to make the most of the experience and learn from playing against top-level players.

Before the international and All Stars fixtures, Vine’s immediate focus is on helping Sydney FC secure another Premier’s Plate by finishing the Liberty A-League season strongly. The team has three crucial matches remaining, including a showdown with Melbourne Victory on the final day of the regular season.

With Vine’s talent and determination, both at the club level and on the international stage, she is poised to make a significant impact in Australian football and potentially achieve her long-held dream of representing her country at the Olympics.
