    Seems the Matildas have the developed the same problem as the Socceroos.

    Would it have happened under Staj? We'll never know.......

    The friendly performances against France and England probably suggest yes it would have happened under Staj, but maybe not in as painful a fashion.

    Speaking of painful, this new waiting for a play to end before flagging a fairly obvious offside is painful. If its not even close to being wrong- make the call straight away- please. :)

    Good to see the team bounce back. I didn't see the match, just the goals on the news, but to fight back from 2-0 down when when they have already had one disappointing performance shows a lot of character. Congratulations to them.

    Back to this, I thought Milicic's response was interesting:

    Wow Norway 1 - 1 Australia went to ET then PKs.

    Norway went first and took excellent penalties, well practiced confident into the far corners or waited until goalie was committed.

    Australia took horrible horrible PKs missed first two. Didn't have have the mentality. 1st taker was Sam Kerr, the captain just skied it. Went downhill from there.

    Really thought the Matildas could do it. Shame.

    4-1 pks

    Yep- very professional European penalty taking by the Norwegians.

    The sending off of Kennedy obviously killed off any chance of winning the game in extra time.

    Did anyone else notice the shonky "coin toss" before the shootout? Dodgy as :D

    Was wondering what was going on with that toss. I’ll just have a look at it then flip it over.

    A draw will be enough to get first place and home and away matches with Vietnam. A loss means we play South Korea.

    That's two goals, that is!



    Final score AUS 1-1 CHN

    Ahhh, they'll be fine. Maybe.

    First things first, the Olympic playoff is home-and-away, 1st leg in Newcastle on 6 March. Vietnam beat Thailand in extra time in two SE Asian tournament finals after the Women's World Cup, but shouldn't pose much of a threat in this one.

    Olympic playoff 2020: Australia got a 5-0 home win, and this happened in the 2nd leg in the Vietnamese city of Cẩm Phả:

    The W-League final is today (Saturday), Melbourne City v Sydney FC - one of the few football events happening around the world. Due to the coronavirus risk, it'll be played behind closed doors at AAMI Park.
    Australian viewers, if you can get near a TV the kickoff is Saturday 3.30pm AEDT, live on the ABC and other places
    I'll be posting match updates in our thread:

    On the women's board we've also got a thread for anyone's thoughts on the Covid-19 virus at this difficult time.

    NPL state leagues: I did the annual round-up of last season in the women's National Premier Leagues, many of which are streamed online. Some past and future Matildas players in the lineups:
