Match Highlights

Quotes

"I’m obviously very proud of the team. I read a lot of reports before the tournament and I don’t think one predicted us to progress. The first ten minutes was fantastic, and then we lost some composure for a while. A tough game and not a pretty one to watch perhaps, but this gives us so much belief that we can take on the best and beat them in the knockout rounds," Alen Stajcic, Australia coach
