Vying to represent Oceania at the Summer Olympics, the Ferns were simply unstoppable in the Final, proving too strong for their opponents.

City skipper, Stott, captained the side throughout the tournament, becoming the thirteenth Football Fern to reach 100 caps in the Final.

Wilkinson was clinical in the front third, netting two goals and registering one assist in the 11-1 victory.

After missing City’s games against Sydney FC and Adelaide United, the duo will now return to Melbourne and link up with the squad during the international break.

Head Coach Dario Vidosic’s side is back in action following the international window when they head to Brisbane to take on the Roar on Saturday 2 March at Perry Park.
