The new Socceroos and Matildas kits have been released - but not everyone is happy.
Matildas fans have been left fuming after it was revealed that punters won't be able to purchase the new jersey in women's sizes until 2022.
As for men's sizes, they're already fully stocked in sports shops up and down the country.

Nike and Football Federation Australia (FFA) unveiled the new Socceroos and Matildas jerseys last week.
In addition to the sleek design, the shirts themselves are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.
The overall reception to the kits was great at first with Aussie fans eager to get their hands on it as soon as possible.
But for any Matildas supporters keen on donning the latest edition of the iconic green away kit, unfortunately they'll have to wait... for around two years.
As fans flocked online to purchase the new away strip, they quickly realised that it wasn't available in women's sizes.
And, understandably, people weren't best pleased.
"Unfortunately, the new national teams away kit will not be available in women's sizes," the Matildas' official Twitter account confirmed.
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused and can assure supporters that this will be rectified for the next kit release due in 2022."

And it didn't take long for fans to vent on social media.
Even Matildas midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight took to Twitter to let everyone know of her frustrations.
"Ummmmm, this is a fairly significant problem @nikefootball," Kellond-Knight tweeted.
It's understood the FFA and Nike are now working together to come to an arrangement to have the kits made in women's sizes.
