A Betoota Heights grandmother of 11 has today shown her colours, and issued a huge statement in solidarity with our Matildas.
Walking out onto the front porch while her granddaughter filmed for the family group chat, Beverly Hills decide to toss her famous Danish Biscuit tin in the bin.
An icon of the Hill’s household, the old biscuit tin has held all manner of household related items over the years.
However, with the Matildas taking on Denmark in a do or die Round of 16 clash, Beverly says it was time for it to go.
“Bye bye,” laughed Beverly, who’s got the grandkids coming over for the big game tonight.
“It’s time to go all out for the girls.”
Bev’s actions come ahead of the knockout clash with Denmark at the Olympic Stadium at 8:30pm tonight.
Coming off the back of a thumping 4-0 win against Olympic champions Canada, the Matildas head into the match with the number 15 ranked Denmark slight favourites.
While many fans are hoping for the backs against the wall mentality the Matildas have been developing lately, the favouritism comes after a dominant performance a few days ago orchestrated by midfield generals Katrina Gorry and Kyra Cooney-Cross, and rampaging wingers Caitlin Foord and Hayley Raso.
Creaking through the group stages, the Danes are looking for an upset against the world hosts, something with Nana Bev says she’s not having a bar of.
“Not tonight love,” laughed Bev.
“It’s Tilly Time.”
