INTERNATIONAL CITY: Young Matildas are World Cup bound

Melbourne City trio Daniela Galic, Tijan McKenna, Naomi Chinnama and the Young Matildas have booked their spot at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Colombia 2024™.

The Young Matildas secured their place at the U20 World Cup after finishing top of Group A at the AFC U20 Women’s Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2024™.

Australia sealed qualification with a 3-0 win over Chinese Taipei in their final Group Stage fixture – making it nine points from a possible nine to begin the tournament.

City star, Daniela Galic, was once again instrumental for the Young Matildas, playing a delightful ball to Jessika Nash for the opener. Goals to Zara Kruger and Claudia Cicco secured the win.

The Young Matildas now prepare for a blockbuster Semi-Final, as they take on reigning champions, Japan.
