Chloe Logarzo’s star continues to rise after this morning’s win for the Westfield Matildas at the Algarve Cup in Portugal.

The all-action Sydney FC star was on the scoresheet for the Australians in their 2-0 win over China PR.

Her header to open the scoring was a brilliant piece of inventive skill.

Goal-scoring midfielders are like gold dust in football and the 23-year-old has scored three goals in her last four appearances for Australia in all competitions.

Logarzo is in great form right now and pushing for a regular spot ahead of next month’s Asian Cup.

She also hit the woodwork with a rasping long-range drive that cannoned off the post as she dominated the opening half.

Check out these match facts from today’s win by the Matildas…

  • The Westfield Matildas have won each of the last four matches against China PR in all competitions by an aggregate scoreline of 12-2 and are now unbeaten in eight matches against China PR in all competitions (W6 D2).
    Australia have now extended their unbeaten run to ten games in all competitions (W9 D1), since losing on penalties to Denmark in March 2017.
