International City: Five players called up to Matildas camp


The three-day camp, which commenced yesterday at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, features five Melbourne City FC players.

Midfielder Aivi Luik was rewarded for her impressive form to date, receiving her first call-up to the national team since February.

The 30-year-old has featured in all of Melbourne City FC’s fixtures this season, scoring twice from the centre of midfield.



Luik departed for Canberra alongside fellow Melbourne City FC teammates Steph Catley, Lisa De Vanna, Laura Alleway and Larissa Crummer.

It marks the fourth occasion the quartet have received a call-up to the national team throughout the 2015-16 W-League season, most recently featuring for the Green and Gold a fortnight ago in South Korea.

All players are expected to be available for Sunday’s Round 10 clash against Perth Glory.
