Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson 'bit concerned' following hamstring injury to Caitlin Foord - as China earn 1-1 draw ahead of Paris Olympics

Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson has admitted he is a 'bit concerned' about a possible hamstring injury to star striker Caitlin Foord - as debate rages as to whether she should have been rested ahead of the Paris Olympics.

Foord was replaced just after the hour mark on Friday in the friendly against China in Adelaide after reporting tightness in her hamstring.

Gustavsson insisted it was precautionary - but the Arsenal star won't feature in Monday night's rematch at Accor Stadium in Sydney.

'I'm a bit concerned,' the Swede said at fulltime, where Australia drew 1-1 following an injury time equaliser from Michelle Heyman in Adelaide.
