Sam Kerr’s return to Chelsea puts ‘extreme’ Matildas journey into perspective

Sam Kerr’s return to Chelsea puts ‘extreme’ Matildas journey into perspective

In the month that has passed since the Matildas’ hopes of lifting the FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy came to a crushing end, Sam Kerr’s life has looked back to normal.

Her cruelly timed calf injury is well and truly in the past.

The awards have kept coming, finishing runner-up for UEFA player of the year and earning a Ballon d’Or nomination for the sixth year in a row.

But her return to Chelsea ahead of the Women’s Super League opener in a fortnight also allowed for a moment of reflection on the Matildas’ journey.

Conversations with her English teammates revealed a new-found appreciation for the commitment required from Aussie stars on the world stage.

“Being an Australian, you have to have that resilience to travel, to perform under extreme conditions,” Kerr told inews.

“Talking to the girls that travelled out there (to the World Cup) with three weeks to their first game, we were laughing because I said ‘imagine travelling all that way and having to play Arsenal two days later’.

“Aussies, we’re used to it, it was funny for us listening to all the horror jet lag stories. That’s something we’ve grown to just be normal in our careers. But the miles we travel compared to other countries, and you see all the girls around the league that are Aussie doing so well, it kind of puts it into perspective when you travel out there and have to play.”

Kerr’s itinerary after the World Cup included a flight to Perth, on to England and then out to Portugal for pre-season training.

The superstar and her European-based Matildas teammates will make another journey back to Australia in three weeks’ time for Olympic qualifiers in her hometown Perth.

The travel is all part of a deal that’s far from over.

In response to a question about Australia’s Tokyo Olympics campaign, where they finished fourth just as they did at this year’s World Cup, Kerr reiterated she has no plans to step back from the Matildas any time soon.

“As a footballer you don’t really get the time to sit back and reflect,” she said of the Olympics.

“That’s probably something I’ll do once I’ve retired or once I’ve slowed down or stopped playing for the national team, which is a fair few years away yet.”

With the disappointment of missing out on the Matildas’ ultimate goal behind her – for now at least – Kerr is fully focused on winning more silverware with Chelsea.

But the World Cup offered a healthy reality check.

“Every athlete knows football isn’t smooth sailing,” she said.

“It’s a bit of a rollercoaster, lots of ups and downs, and sometimes people only see the big ups that I’ve had over the last few years.

“Even the resilience of playing week in, week out, game after game is really important.

“Honestly I think it’s a big part of where I am today because I’ve been able to bounce back time after time, season after season, game after game.”
