Oi! Aussies! We desperately need a new chant to inspire the Matildas to Women’s World Cup glory

Matildas fans have a massive problem at this year’s Women’s World Cup – and it’s not Sam Kerr’s left calf.

It prompted Guardian Australia’s own Matilda Boseley to pen this special number, in the hope of encouraging a broader musical outpouring for the national team with which she shares a name.

If you’ve got an idea for a new Matildas chant, record it and send it to us or write up the lyrics and send it, or post it in the comments below.
