It was great to see – yes in Germany the under 17 World Cup has been televised – the five Western Australians in the squad all get on the park. Jesse Makarounas, Mitchell Oxborrow, Riley Woodcock, Tom King and Dylan Tombides, all took to the field in their unlucky loss 1-0 to Brazil. Who can remember Western Australia having five representatives on the field in one match for Australia?
Australia will be hoping for a win in their final group game against Denmark on Monday. Denmark has lost their two games and are bottom of a group. Brazil are with six points from their two games. Ivory Coast has three points as do Australia but are ahead on goal difference, so the Australians will be hoping for a win, and that Brazil beat the Ivorians.
Congratulations to Kenny Lowe and all associated with the NTC for their part in these players development.
