Matildas reach Peace Queen Cup final

The Matildas have qualified for the 2010 Peace Queen Cup women's soccer final in South Korea following a 1-0 victory over Taiwan.

Katie Gill's 12th minute strike was enough to hand Australia a lead they would never give up.

Coach Tom Sermanni was pleased to be comfortably through to the final on Saturday, where they will play the winner of New Zealand and England.

But he warned they will need to convert more opportunities into goals in the final.

"It was a game we should have won more convincingly, we completely outplayed them but just didn't have the finishing touch," he said.

"We created a lot of chances in the second half but just couldn't convert them, it's one of those matches we should have won by four or five goals - we just need to be a little more decisive, a little more ruthless."

The Matildas set the tone for the match early on when Queensland's Elise Kellond-Knight charged down the right hand side of the field, and beat two Taiwanese defenders before putting in a dangerous ball which resulted in a corner.

From the resulting setpiece, Tameka Butt whipped in a cross which found Gill on the penalty spot whose header sailed past goalkeeper Feng Huang into the top right corner.

The Matildas controlled the rest of the match, with crisp passing and smart defence, while creating several more chances to add to their lead.

In the second half stand-in captain Collette McCallum's free-kick prowess was on show as her pass found Gill, who headed into the crossbar.
