“When she realized it was the World Cup and the first release of the jerseys, she was excited… She’s smiling widely in the photo, so she’s definitely excited about it.”
The Matildas made global headlines when they achieved phenomenal success at the Women’s World Cup last year.
The shirts went on sale Tuesday and are available for both men and women.
It comes after Pink, who was born Alecia Beth Moore, was left completely speechless by a fan’s very X-rated proposal during her Summer Carnival show over the weekend in Melbourne.
Pink, 44, who is currently touring Australia, and her daughter Willow, 12, were presented with personalized purple jerseys by Matildas goalkeeper Lydia Williams in Melbourne.
He was talking to fans in the audience at Marvel Stadium when he noticed a woman holding up a sign to try to get his attention.
The star admitted she was shocked when she read the note addressed to her and her husband Carey Hart.
Pink told the crowd: ‘That sign says “You, Carey and I, trio?” I don’t know what to say! I am often left speechless.
She seemed to see the funny side of the proposal when she took to her Instagram after the show to re-share a video of the exchange.
The superstar has been busy traveling around Australia for her highly sought-after shows and her upcoming stage appearance in Adelaide on Tuesday night.
She was joined in Australia by her husband, Carey, 48, an off-road truck racer, and children Willow and Jameson, seven.
Pink has long considered Australia a second home and let slip that she was “investigating” possible citizenship in February 2023.
‘This is amazing, I will wear it proudly. It says Pink and it’s number one,” Pink said delightedly.
