Matilda’s stars are rallying around goalkeeper Teagan Micah following the death of her grandmother this week.
Micah, 25, who plays for Liverpool in the English Super League, posted an emotional tribute to her late grandma on Sunday.
“You can rest easy now Grandma, my biggest supporter, I love and miss you,” Micah wrote.
“And also for my mother, I would do anything to hug you so warmly right now.” I love you so much. I send you all my strength and more x.’
Micah posted several photos of herself with her grandma and a photo of herself posing with her mother during the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Micah is only the second Australian footballer ever to join the Reds, following Emily Gielnik’s stint with Liverpool in 2012, and the sixth Australian – male or female – to join the English powerhouse.
It’s a huge achievement for Micah, who suffered a serious concussion early in her career and was forced to sit on the bench for six months.
