Melissa Barbieri is a name synonymous with the Matildas. Barbieri's record for the green and gold is one of the most impressive in Australian women's football history. Bubs, as she is known among her peers, kept 34 clean sheets in 86 A-international appearances.


Bubs has had an extensive national league career, starting in the Victorian Women's National Soccer League (1997-2004), where she made her debut aged 16. Some may not know that up until 2000, Bubs was an outfield player, playing in midfield. Such is the depth of her talent.


A member of the 2004 Athens Olympics squad and veteran of four FIFA Women's World Cups, Bubs captained the Matildas at the 2011 Finals in Germany. Her almost-century of matches for the Matildas included three AFC Women's Asian Cups, culminating in Australia's first triumph against North Korea in 2010, where she lifted the trophy as captain.


Naturally, Bubs has played a starring role in Australia's national women's football competition, the W-League. She has turned out for Melbourne Victory (2008-2011 and 2015-2016), Newcastle United Jets (2011-2012), Adelaide United (2013-2014) and Melbourne City (2017-2019), winning Goalkeeper of the Season twice and the league in 2018.


This design celebrates one of the fiercest competitors and most enduring athletes Australian football has ever seen. We all love Bubs!
