The Young Matildas applied the pressure to Lebanon's defence early but despite their efforts, they were not able to find a way into the box.

They tried to combat Lebanon's style of defence, which seemed to be to have everyone behind the ball, by shooting from outside the box. However, the goalkeeper was able to stop any powerful shots. 

Samira Awad caused Australia problems down the right wing but her teammates were unable to help her move closer to go on each occasion. 

It took a through ball from Amy Sayer to put Kyra Cooney-Cross in on goals and she gave Australia the lead.

The rest of the half saw the Young Matildas have chances while there were some harsh challenges from Lebanese players on the Australian midfield. 

After the break, the Young Matildas found the back of the net again with Sayer doubling the lead.

Lebanon was hampered by injuries in the second half with two players being forced off the pitch while at one stage they had two players down with cramps, including their keeper. 

The Young Matildas have one game left in their 2019 AFC U-19 Women's Championship qualification and will face Hong Kong, who have already been eliminated on Sunday October 28.

Australia: 2 (Cooney-Cross 24', Sayer 47')

Lebanon: 0
