Koalas kicking their way to Disney final

The Foxtel All-Stars Kickin' Koalas have booked a place in the Disney Cup International Grand Final after a big 6-1 win over Hereford Stampede.

The tournament, held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World in Florida, will see the U12 girls side from Australia compete in the final on Saturday.

The Kickin' Koalas handed the American side their first loss of the competition to top their table and advance to the final. 

Captain for the match Maja Markovski and Brigid Sullivan scored a brace each, with Sofi Sakalis adding to her tally and Tyra Barancewicz scoring her first goal of the tournament.

The Foxtel All-Stars Outback Rangers, the U12 boys team, had a day off to prepare for their semi-final against Rivellino Sports Centre from Brazil on Friday.

Socceroo legend Tim Cahill, who was recently awarded the ESPY for MLS Player of the Season, will Skype with both sides as they head in to their important matches over the next two days.

Got to hand it to that Tim Cahill chap. Like Ange Postecoglou (who he says is the only person he's met who has more passion for the game than him) he is a leader and he is on the same path to grow the game in Australia. They both work tirelessly finding time and doing things not just for money but love of Australian Football's development in this country.
I never had heroes, but this Socceroos team keeps on giving me them. From Schwarzer, to Kewell to Neill, to Cahill and Postecoglou. Leckie next ! All great leaders of men !
