Kerr (pictured playing for the Matildas against New Zealand in April) leapfrogged Tim Cahill to become Australia’s all-time top goal scorer this year

‘When it is a big match, or a big goal, it seems to happen. People always ask me when I’m going to do it and I never know. It is just pure emotion.’

Blues’ manager Emma Hayes knew the backflip was coming back sooner of later.

‘I’m shaking my head because I’ve waited 12 months for that,’ Hayes said after the celebration. ‘She could’ve given me a heads up. The second half of the flip was very sloppy. It would’ve been a 4.0 at the Olympics.’
