Matildas co-captain De Vanna was hit with a one-match suspension for an incident in a W-League semi-final earlier this month.

The Canberra United forward was cited by Football Federation Australia nine days after charging into the back of Melbourne City's Jess Fishlock in an off-the-ball attack that was missed by the match officials.

FFA cite De Vanna for elbow nine days later
Matildas co-captain Lisa De Vanna has been cited nine days after charging into Melbourne City's Jess Fishlock off the ball and from behind, with her elbow, during Canberra United's W-League extra-time semi-final loss.

De Vanna pleaded guilty to the charge of "Serious Unsporting Conduct" and nine days after being chraged, FFA's independent disciplinary and ethics committee panel determined the minimum sanction of a mandatory match suspension would suffice.

De Vanna has no right to appeal.
