The Matildas, including Warners Bay local Emily Van Egmond, will be in action tonight in Tokyo as they work toward a medal.
In normal times Emily’s very proud and supportive family would be by her side cheering from the stands, but they are stuck watching it like the rest of us on TV.
Australia’s under 20’s coach Gary Van Egmond is Emily’s very proud dad. He caught up with Tracy Mac on Newcastle Live Radio to chat about the performance of the Olyroos and, of course, how Emily is ahead of tonight’s massive match against Sweeden.
