Football Ferns to face Matildas

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 10/05/2016

The Rio-bound Football Ferns are to feature in an international double-header with the Socceroos in Melbourne.

New Zealand will face the Australian women's team on June 7 at Etihad Stadium before the Socceroos play an international friendly against Greece.

The match will be the official Rio farewell for the world No.5-ranked Matildas, while New Zealand are ranked 16th.

With the majority of the overseas-based Matildas players available, coach Alen Stajcic is excited about playing their trans-Tasman rivals less than two months out from the August Olympics.
