Australia beat USA

 

Well, nicely, properly. What a result for Australia. That’s the primary time in 27 games they’ve managed to get one of us, and it may nicely be a watershed second for the crew. Their progression maintains apace, and the result proves they have what it takes to mix it with the very nice within the globe. Next up is Japan, and another victory over their Asian rivals will place them on course for silverware per week.

For the US, it’s a 3rd home defeat of the year, following losses to France and England, and their failure to find a manner via what changed into admittedly a resolute Australian defense will, although raise questions, given the expertise available to coach Jill Ellis.
