The Matildas are prepared for an emotionally charged clash with Canada as all-time leading international goal scorer Christine Sinclair plays her final game for her country.
The prolific forward will take to the international stage for the last time at Vancouver's BC Place, renamed Christine Sinclair Place for the game, in Wednesday's (AEDT) friendly.
The 40-year-old has scored a record 190 international goals, more than anyone in the women's and men's games, won an Olympic gold medal and appeared at six World Cups.
Matildas stars Caitlin Foord, Hayley Raso, Ellie Carpenter and Steph Catley all previously played with Sinclair at NWSL side the Portland Thorns.
More than 45,000 tickets have been sold for Sinclair's send-off but Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson was adamant his players would not be overawed by the occasion.
"These players are very experienced when it comes to handling emotions," he said.
"Whether it's that kind of do-or-die game against Canada in the World Cup or we're just bouncing back from a loss.
"I've heard there's a lot of tickets sold for tomorrow, so the atmosphere is going to be amazing.
"But I also know the players are professional - that before the game there's going to be a lot of honouring, a lot of emotions, and thanking her for the career.
"But once the kick-off goes, the referee blows the whistle and we're going to play 90 minutes of football, I know they're going to be all in playing."
Sinclair featured for half-an-hour off the bench in Canada's 5-0 win over Australia in the first match of the two-friendly tour on Saturday.
"I was looking at it myself, thinking, 'This is a player maybe (in her) last camp, you don't want to get injured. You want to go out to get some minutes, some touches on the ball and then get out of the game in a healthy way'. But not 'Sinc'," Gustavsson said.
"She's competing. It doesn't matter what the score is, she comes in and she gives it 100 (per cent) on both sides of the ball.
"That says a lot about her as a player but also about Canada as a team.
"It's an extremely hard-working team on both sides of the ball and I think we're going to see the same thing tomorrow.
"Before the game I hope that we can be a part of honouring her because that real respect she deserves. I know the players want to do it as well.
"But the best way to respect her once the game starts is to make it a game, a proper game and really compete - because that's what she wants."
