Matildas coach Ante Milicic slams Australia's youth development programs

Uzbekistan prevailed 2-1 over Oman in their 2019 AFC Asian Cup opener courtesy of Eldor Shomurodov's late winner.
ESPN's Julie Foudy breaks down Australia's chances of qualifying from Group C, which includes Italy, Brazil and Jamaica.

Ante Milicic has smashed Australia's underage male programs as "not serious" as the Olyroos ready themselves for a qualifying tilt at the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

The Matildas coach would know; he led both the under-23 and under-20 national sides last year at tournaments where Australia fell short of reaching qualifying goals.

"Our underage programs, they're not serious programs," he told AAP. "They're not designed for qualification. Simple as that.

"When I look at the preparation that we give our teams...

Australia's 2023 Women's World Cup bid hinges on AFC endorsement - FFA president

ESPN's Julie Foudy joins Golic & Wingo to talk favourites to win the 2019 Women's World Cup and her new podcast Laughter Permitted.

FFA president Chris Nikou has hinted at the challenges facing Australia in its determination to host the Women's World Cup in 2023, beginning with endorsement from Asian colleagues.

But one that may not be present is the clash with local sporting codes, with FIFA indicating it would be open to a tournament later in the year.

Australia has its hand up to stage the next event after this June's edition in France, where the Matildas are expected to challenge for a maiden title.

Koutroumbis and Petratos score as Jets beat Melbourne Victory on the road.

Sacked Matildas boss Alen Stajcic is back in football after he was appointed caretaker coach of A-League strugglers Central Coast.

Stajcic, controversially axed as coach of the Australian women's team in January, will take over the Mariners for the remainder of the season.

The 45-year-old fills the void left by the sacking of Mike Mulvey just hours after the rock-bottom Mariners' 8-2 home thrashing by Wellington on Saturday night.

"I would like to thank the Central Coast Mariners for providing me...

Matildas thrilled with 'out there, bold' new World Cup kits - Sam Kerr

For the first time, the Matildas will wear a uniquely designed kit at this year's World Cup.

Though the watercolour design evokes memories of the most infamous Socceroos kit in history -- the 1990s spew shirt -- there's no player revolt over the new design.

Sam Kerr has lauded the new shirt, saying it represents the Matildas' spirit as an "out there and bold" team.

"The kit is unreal, it's such a different take on what we've seen in the past and we couldn't have hoped for a better looking home jersey,"...

The Australian skipper rose bravely and superbly to give her side a lead after less than four minutes, ensuring a Matildas win was never in doubt on Wednesday night at Melbourne's AAMI Park.

Alanna Kennedy doubled Australia's advantage from Elise Kellond-Knight's corner from the other flag on the half-hour mark, with Caitlin Foord completing the rout with an injury-time penalty.
