Matildas beaten by US in women's soccer
The Matildas have been outclassed 4-0 by the United States in a women's soccer friendly international in Texas.
Reigning FIFA women's world player of the year Abby Wambach was among four goalscorers for the world No.1-ranked US outfit in the match at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
Australia's best player was striker Lisa De Vanna, who forced American goalkeeper Hope Solo into several saves.
"Our forward line was very dangerous in the first half and we created opportunities through our build-up which is a good thing," said Australian coach Hesterine De Reus.
"The defending part of our game was not good enough. Conceding four goals is way too much."
The Matildas return to Australia for two friendlies against China in Wollongong on November 24 and Sydney on November 27.
