W-League Team News: City’s Round 2 squad


The team is in for Friday night’s clash with Sydney FC. See who’s in and who’s out ahead of our Grand Final rematch.

Head Coach Rado Vidosic’s squad will be boosted by the inclusions of Elise Kellond-Knight and Yukari Kinga.

Matildas international, Kellond-Knight, is set to make her first appearance for the Club since joining City in the offseason. With 100 international caps to her name, the midfielder will bring both leadership and stability to the squad.

Meanwhile, Kinga returns to the squad for the first time this season. The World Cup winner was one of City’s most important players last season and will be looking to provide the same attacking flare.

Youngster Sofia Sakalis also returns following her stint with the Westfield Young Matildas.
