Australia Team News:
If the scoreline has any bearing over Australia head coach Ante Milicic’s decisions, then he will likely tinker with his playing 11 for this particular game. But Aussies didn’t play badly and created enough chances to win the game. So in that scenario, we may see the same playing 11 here.
Milicic himself admitted that he won’t deviate away from his attacking philosophy.
The problem was the high defensive line and defensive lapses which proved deadly in the end. A more cautious approach, with the same playing 11, with the defenders not looking for the off-side on every occasion, is what we expect from the Aussies in this match.
Milicic will monitor the fitness of key players Caitlin Foord, Lisa De Vanna, and defender Clare Polkinghorne.
In addition, experienced midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight has overcome the fitness issues and is now ready to start.
