Australia's women's team will enter the Olympics all the wiser for a 3-1 away loss to Brazil, coach Alen Stajcic says.

The Brazilians, aided by some home-town calls in the friendly at Fortaleza on Saturday, scored three times after Australian star Katrina Gorry was sent off.

Gorry was marched for second yellow card in the 50th minute, when the Matildas held a 1-0 lead in their sole warm-up for the Rio Olympics.

"When the game was 11 vs. 11, it was certainly more in our favour than it was for them,"...
