All-Star Aussie kids reach Disneying heights
The Kickin’ Koalas (girls) and Outback Rangers (boys) both posted 5-0 wins over their opposition on match day two of the tournament.
The 20 talented Aussie kids were selected for two U-12 teams to compete at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World.
Both teams are yet to concede a goal, with the latest wins consolidating the All Stars’ lead in their respective groups.
Outback Rangers defeated Dandy Town Youth Academy from Bermuda while the Kickin’ Koalas downed Cordica from Mexico.
This followed a sizzling start on match day one when the girls romped past Leones FC from Puerto Rico 8-0, while the boys chipped in with a 7-0 victory over Colombian side, Fortaleza.
Rangers’ latest win came at a cost, however, with attacking midfielder Godfrey Debele injured shortly after scoring his second goal and forced to withdraw from the rest of the tournament.
Socceroo legend, Tim Cahill, held a special Skype session with the players on the eve of their matches providing them with advice on how to prepare for the games.
Cahill will continue to provide guidance over the coming days as the teams work towards securing a place in the finals.
