Samantha Kerr Is Australia’s Greatest Ever Goalscsorer

Samantha Kerr has written another chapter in Australian football history by becoming the nation’s greatest international goalscorer of all-time. The 28-year old put away five goals in the Matildas record-breaking 18-0 defeat of Indonesia in the opening round of the 2022 Women’s Asian Cup in India.

Kerr’s remarkable haul – which included a hat-trick inside 18 minutes – took her international tally to 54 goals from 105 appearances, eclipsing the record of Socceroos legend Tim Cahill, who put away 50 goals in 108 games. It is the first time a Matilda has scored five goals in a game since Kate Gill achieved the feat in 2007’s 15-0 romp over Hong Kong.
