Judith Griggs to lead Football Federation Australia reform - report

The ESPN panel in London are skeptical of Australia ahead of the World Cup with Bert van Marwijk's defensive mindset and an aging squad.

Kennedy netted a 91st minute equaliser and Arnold made...

Stajcic's Matildas earned their place at the 2019 World Cup by progressing to the final four of the AFC tournament in Jordan, jumping off the canvas with a late goal against Japan to seal a 1-1 draw and top spot in their group.

They now look forward to a semifinal against Thailand late on Tuesday.

That will be the rarest of occasions -- a match deep in a tournament...
