USA 3 Australia 2

Never say die Australia, nearly pulled off a great comeback. Instead they somehow blew it in the 93rd minute!

In the 89th minute they were 2-0 down to powerhouse USA, and somehow clawed back to 2-2. A draw was a certainty or so they must have thought.

The Matildas were 2-0 down at half-time. Cheryl Salisbury scored a penalty in the
89th minute, quickly followed by a Kate Gill goal, and then disaster struck with a late late USA goal.

Local Matildas Lydia Williams, Sally Shipard and Amy Chapman started for the Aussies against the USA this morning.

Go aussie girls. Great to see Canberrans in the mix.

Official crowd - 3,698. Not bad considering the game was delayed by an hour due to torrential rain and thunderstorms.

Go Matildas
