- Australia 2-0 New Zealand (Gielnik 44’, Raso 74’)
- Ante Milicic’s first game in charge ends in victory
Having endured a horror few weeks following the controversial dismissal of Alen Stajcic, few would begrudge those Matildas players who wanted attention to shift back onto actual football. Finally, they got their wish at Leichhardt Oval, where Ante Milicic’s first outing as coach resulted in a comfortable 2-0 win over New Zealand.
It was with a certain sense of relief, under the floodlights of the atmospheric old suburban ground in Sydney, that the players were able to return to centre stage as goals from Emily Gielnik and Hayley Raso ensured Milicic was able to enjoy a winning debut.
