Quotes

"A couple bits of class in the end from Rapinoe changed the game. They deserve their victory. I’m really proud of our players. I thought they put in a good performance but it’s not enough. We need to regroup and improve for the next game…It’s still a long way to go," Alan Stajcic, Australia coach.
