The Matildas are in Geelong this weekend to play a re-match against China after downing them 3-0 in a friendly in Melbourne on Wednesday night.

After Australiaโ€™s heartbreak in the Olympics last year, coach Alen Stajcic labelled the upcoming era as a new โ€œfour-year-cycleโ€.

Australia are currently preparing for the 2018 Asian Cup in Jordan and the 2019 World Cup in France where many have the belief the Matildas can take out both.

The Matildas made history in 2010 when they took out the Asian Cup in China, however, Kerr believes this current squad is the golden generation.

โ€œI would have to say yes (this is the golden generation), but Iโ€™m biased because Iโ€™m a part of it,โ€ Kerr told FourFourTwo.

โ€œI honestly donโ€™t think weโ€™ve had this many great players in one team. Weโ€™ve had great players over the years, but weโ€™ve still got Lisa De Vanna, Emily van Egmond, Steph Catley, Alanna Kennedy and Caitlin Foord.

โ€œYou could name heaps of girls, I donโ€™t think weโ€™ve had a team full of players as good as those girls.

โ€œI was thinking about that the other day and you could say weโ€™re the golden generation, but I donโ€™t think Iโ€™m the one to call it the golden generation.

โ€œI think when the World Cup comes around, weโ€™ll be prepared in the best way possible. With Stajโ€™s training, we have so many great people working for us to give us the best possible situation.โ€

Kerr has had a stellar year and has become the new poster girl of the Matildas.

She continued her stunning form against the Chinese with a brace and is getting all the plaudits.

But the 24-year-old said the hype was not getting to her head and felt completely humble about her success.

โ€œI think anyone that knows me knows that Iโ€™m not like that,โ€ she said.

โ€œI still get a little bit embarrassed and I donโ€™t like the spotlight to be on me. Iโ€™ve always said Iโ€™m happy to be flying the flag for womenโ€™s sport, especially womenโ€™s football.

โ€œIโ€™m just proud to be a part of this team because there are so many good role models and everybody represents not only themselves, but the football code really well.โ€

Kyah Simon, 26, can be considered a veteran of the Matildas, was the hero of the 2010 triumph and has been involved in the 2011 and 2015 World Cups.

The Melbourne City striker made her Matildas debut in 2007 and has played with the likes of Kate Gill, Heather Garriock, Sally Shipard and Melissa Barbieri.

Simon said the Matildas were in โ€œprime timeโ€.

โ€œIt definitely feels like the most talented Matildas group Iโ€™ve been a part of, Iโ€™ve been coached under Staj since I was 15-years-old,โ€ Simon told FourFourTwo.

โ€œHeโ€™s done some fantastic things for the group, heโ€™s really found a way to bring out the potential and the talent within the group.

โ€œWeโ€™ve got so many talented girls in our team across the board from Lyds (Lydia Williams) in goal, all the way up front to Sammy.

โ€œIt excites me to be a part of that and Iโ€™ve seen so many of the girls grow from 16-year-olds now into fully developed mature players.

โ€œItโ€™s quite exciting and Iโ€™m just excited to get into those tournaments and show the world what we can do.โ€

Simon said the 2019 World Cup comes at the perfect time for the Matildas.

โ€œWe had girls come in at a young age six and seven years ago and now theyโ€™re hitting their straps,โ€ she said.

โ€œTheyโ€™ve hit some form and theyโ€™re in their prime years coming into this World Cup. Itโ€™s exciting for the team, weโ€™ve definitely shown ourselves as a group this year against major nations.

โ€œI think by the time the major tournaments come, this next four-year-cycle is probably the most exciting time since Iโ€™ve been with the Matildas in terms of the potential to do well in major tournaments.โ€
