“This team has continued with being disciplined on and off the field and that has been evident by the way they have performed with a positivity and a willingness to play for each other at every moment.”

“I’m extremely proud of this group, though only part one of the job is done. Part two will be looking to qualify for the World Cup at next year’s AFC championships.”

Joining Australia in the World Cup Qualifiers are former U17 World Champions South Korea, Bangledesh and Laos.

The Junior Matildas will return to Australia before commencing preparations for next year’s championships in China where Australia will be looking to qualify for the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup for the first time.
