Everyone is in the shop window.
And that's paving the way for Canberra United's Michelle Heyman to make her Matildas return, as her second coming in the W-League continues to turn back the clock.
Olympic hopefuls have only four rounds left of the regular season to leave a lasting impression on new Matildas coach Tony Gustavasson, who has made it known he has a clean slate for selection.
Gustavasson and Matildas staff are watching the W-League closely with Tokyo 2021 only four months away.
Heyman, a 61-capped Matilda, retired from international football in May 2019 - having battled a string of injuries and missed out on World Cup selection.
She was mentally and physically drained but now, 21 months later, she's back in form and lighting up the W-League with United.
Junior Matildas coach Rae Dower said the likes of Heyman and Lisa De Vanna could make a national team comeback this year if they continue to perform well.
"There have been a number of players that have taken opportunities to put in great performances," Dower said.
"You've got a brand new coach in Tony Gustavasson, you've got different perspectives and he doesn't have any preconceived ideas.
"[To] every single player he's made it well known, and so have the other Matildas staff, that if you're playing well you're in with a chance. Everyone is in the shop window.
"They're two players that have obviously performed very well given their opportunities this year. Anyone who is playing well has an opportunity to make their way into the Olympic squad."
Heyman will get her next opportunity to impress Matildas selectors when Canberra host the unbeaten Brisbane Roar at Viking Park on Sunday.
Speaking ahead of the clash, she downplayed her aspirations of Olympic selection with her focus for now on the W-League.
"Personally, it's not on my own mind. Your thoughts are always there, it's the next big thing - what you can do to become a Matilda and put your face out there to the new coach," Heyman said.
"He's watching every game so you want to perform all the time. I don't think we're that type of team that has that pressure on our shoulders of 'what if'.
"I believe if we continue to be our best player every time we get onto the field individually, then we should be knocking on the door for the Matildas spots."
Heyman is on the cusp of taking back the W-League's all-time scoring record, having found the back of the net six times this season.
She's one goal shy of leveling Sam Kerr for that feat with 70 goals - but has not scored for more than a month.
"Now there is all this pressure again. I hate pressure. I'm just trying to take the game as it comes, do what I can do," Heyman said.
"Control the controllables, don't allow that pressure and other people's opinions to knock me down. It's starting to feel a little bit like that which doesn't upset me, I'm used to it.
"I set my own goals and am trying to do my own things, being this goal scorer is something I strive to be and I want to be the best. I'm going to try my hardest like I do every week.
"Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't. I'm definitely pushing for it."
