- Ante Milicic’s first game in charge ends with comfortable win
- Goals from Gielnik and Raso win it for Australia
And here’s a more fulsome summary of events from Mike Hytner who was at Leichhardt Oval to witness the Milicic Matildas get off on the right foot.
Having endured a horror period following the controversial dismissal of Alen Stajcic, few would begrudge those Matildas players who wanted attention to shift back onto actual football. And, finally, that is what was allowed to happen at Leichhardt Oval, where Ante Milicic’s first outing as coach resulted in a comfortable 2-0 win over New Zealand.
The new era for the Matildas began brightly at Leichhardt Oval with Ante Milicic celebrating a comfortable two goal victory over New Zealand. It was far from a fluid performance with players clearly adapting to new instructions but there was plenty to build on at the start of a World Cup year.
Thank you very much for your company, we’ll be back to do this all again on Sunday when a much sterner test awaits in the form of South Korea.
