Matildas coach Alen Stajcic guided his side to the quarterfinals of the Olympics in Brazil.

Devastated Matildas coach Alen Stajcic has described his side's Olympics quarterfinal loss to Brazil as one of the most courageous efforts he has seen in Australian sport.

Australia's Rio campaign came to an end on Friday night, snuffed out in a dramatic 7-6 quarterfinal penalty shootout in Belo Horizonte.

Looking to break a 0-0 stalemate after extra time, the Matildas had a chance to seal a semifinal berth when local star Marta missed Brazil's fifth spot kick, only for Katrina Gorry's reply to...
