As you probably all know, the Matildas from Australia and the White Ferns from New Zealand are in Winnipeg as part of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, but they are not the only ones from down under playing in Winnipeg this week.
An elite group of 16 girls aged 13 to 16 from Canberra and Sydney are following the World Cup for the next two weeks, and cheering on their home country while also taking part in exhibition games along the way. For more information, visit the Winnipeg Free Press online.
And if you would like to go out and support these young players, I’m sure they’d appreciate a few local Aussies, Kiwis and Canucks cheering them on. They have one more exhibition game in Winnipeg this week, against the Bonivital Flames U16 team at Waverley Soccer Complex on Saturday night at 6:30.
