Wellington Phoenix closes in on second spot in the A-League after overcoming Perth

Wellington Phoenix closes in on second spot in the A-League after overcoming Perth

22/07/2020, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 29961155

Wellington Phoenix has moved closer to second spot in the A-League after withstanding a late surge to beat Perth Glory 2-1 at Sydney’s Bankwest Stadium on Wednesday night.

Goals to imports Gary Hooper and Ulises Davila moved the third-placed Nix to within one point of second-placed Melbourne City, which has played a game more.

The result also meant Wellington remained the only team with a mathematical chance of pipping leaders Sydney for the Premiers Plate, though the Sky Blues need just a point from its remaining four games.

Perth pulled back a goal through Dane Ingham just after the hour and laid siege to the Phoenix goal in the latter stages, but Wellington held on to secure the win.

Neither team produced a decent opportunity in a dull first half hour, but the game perked up after Phoenix hit the front.

Wellington looked dangerous on the counter-attack in the first half and executed one in perfect fashion to open the scoring in the 32nd minute.

Impressive youngster Callum McCowatt lofted a ball over the top and Englishman Hooper brushed off Alex Grant and slotted the ball past an onrushing Liam Reddy for his seventh goal of the campaign.

Perth had the majority of first-half possession but struggled to create chances apart from a fierce drive by Bruno Fornaroli, palmed away by Nix goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic.

Phoenix doubled its advantage in the 48th minute when Davila notched his 12th goal of the season after half-time substitute Jacob Tratt fouled David Ball in the penalty area.

Davila’s spot kick was too precise and powerful for Reddy, who went in the right direction but couldn’t prevent the Mexican from making it five from five this season.

Fornaroli, who had scored nine times in 10 previous games against Wellington, had two chances to equalise.

He curled one shot straight at Marinovic and had another attempt deflected over the bar.

Perth remains in fifth spot.

‘No shortage of interest’: Exit of Ante Milicic sparks worldwide hunt for new Matildas coach

‘No shortage of interest’: Exit of Ante Milicic sparks worldwide hunt for new Matildas coach

19/07/2020, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 29957337

Little more than three years away from hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Football Federation Australia has a major decision to make to replace Ante Milicic as Matildas coach.

Milicic, 46, confirmed on Sunday he was quitting as coach to focus on his position as the inaugural boss of A-League expansion club Macarthur FC.

The ex-Socceroos striker was appointed Matildas mentor in early 2019 after the controversial sacking of Alen Stajcic, despite having no experience coaching in women’s football.

He took the Matildas to the round of 16 of at the Women’s World Cup in France last year and then successfully qualified for the Tokyo Olympics earlier this year.

His future, however, has been in doubt ever since the Olympics were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, having already accepted to take charge of Macarthur for its debut A-League campaign in 2020-21.

Milicic was forced to choose with the FFA not keen on having someone with split roles at the helm before a crucial period for the Matildas, which includes next year’s Olympics, the 2022 Asian Cup and then the potentially financially rewarding World Cup on home soil in 2023.

Former Matildas midfielder Alicia Ferguson-Cook believes the FFA may well have to look outside the women’s game to find the best person to replace Milicic.

Ferguson-Cook, who made 66 appearances for Australia from 1997 to 2007, can see no issue appointing a new coach without women’s football experience due to a dearth of obvious candidates from within the game.

“There’s just not that many at that level,” Ferguson-Cook said.

“If you are going to get someone else it’s probably going to be from the men’s game like they did with Ante, or it’s going to be someone with less experience.

“That’s another risk … they have to think about whether they want to take it or not.”

The leading candidate for the position is Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro, but it remains unclear if he would be willing to give up his role at the English giants for an national-team position.

After significant W-League success at Melbourne City, Montemurro won the English WSL title with the Gunners in 2018-19 and has recently recruited Matildas stars Caitlin Foord, Steph Catley and Lydia Williams to London.

An intriguing option for the FFA would be to tempt American Jill Ellis to Australia.

Ellis won two World Cups with the United States in a five-year stint, but is available after stepping down from the American role after last year’s tournament in France.

Ellis would be a huge acquisition in a similar vein to luring Guus Hiddink as Socceroos coach for the 2006 World Cup if FFA chief James Johnson could manage it.

Locally, W-League premiership winner Mel Andreatta and W-League grand final winner Ante Juric are potential candidates.

Andreatta, as the former Brisbane Roar head coach, worked as an assistant to Milicic at last year’s World Cup.

Andreatta is a long shot for the role but knows the national team set-up and almost all of the squad’s senior players.

Juric is a former Young Matildas coach who led Sydney FC to a W-League grand final victory last year against a Sam Kerr-inspired Perth Glory.

Juric has a long history of coaching in women’s football but his experience at the highest level is limited.

The Milicic exit has wiped the slate clean in terms of coaching teams, with his assistant Ivan Jolic and technical analyst Kate Cohen also joining him at Macarthur.

FFA has confirmed the process to find a new coach would start immediately.

“We expect there will be no shortage of interest in this prestigious role, particularly given all that the team has on the horizon,” Johnson said.

A-League still aiming to finish season in NSW despite Sydney virus outbreak

A-League still aiming to finish season in NSW despite Sydney virus outbreak

14/07/2020, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 29950919

Football Federation Australia intends to push on and play out the 2019-20 A-League season in New South Wales despite the latest COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney.

The Queensland government declared the Campbelltown and Liverpool areas in south-west Sydney as COVID-19 hotspots in the wake of the outbreak.

The declaration has prompted A-League organisers to prepare a ‘Plan B’ option where all 11 clubs will be located in Queensland to play out the remainder of the season.

Under the plan, from Saturday at the earliest, seven clubs would join Brisbane Roar in Queensland.

The league’s three Victorian clubs, currently in quarantine in NSW after their departure from Melbourne last week, would join them at the end of their isolation period.

FFA head of leagues Greg O’Rourke was hopeful that option won’t have to become reality.

“We’ve been speaking to government today at many levels, many different departments in New South Wales about the current restrictions and what they feel the impact would be at this point in time,” O’Rourke said.

“Knowing that these things can change quite dramatically … our position would be that we would continue to play all our games here and that we would be able to operate as a workplace.

“We would continue to do that until we were advised otherwise.”

It means the league will resume as anticipated, with Sydney FC taking on Wellington Phoenix at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Friday.

Sunday’s match between Roar and Adelaide United on the Gold Coast is the only fixture to be played outside NSW under the current schedule.

The COVID-19 situation does mean that Perth Glory will finish its season without captain Diego Castro.

The Spanish marquee has opted not to travel to Sydney with his teammates on Thursday, saying the NSW hub is an “unacceptable health risk” for himself and his family.

The 2015-16 Johnny Warren Medal winner is one of several international players who have opted not to play out the season, including Western United’s marquee Panagiotis Kone and Melbourne City winger Markel Susaeta.

 

O’Rourke said players had a right under a revised collective bargaining agreement not to continue with the season if they did not want to and he wasn’t surprised by the withdrawals.

“Players could make their own conscious decision about whether or not they wanted to relocate and join in the hub model,” he said.

“That trigger, if you like, that was in the extended CBA was always there. I’m not surprised at all that a few players have chosen to exercise that.”‘

O’Rourke has already confirmed the finals series will be pushed back by six days.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today officially unveiled the updated Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy following the rebranding of the Hyundai A-League competition in the lead-up to the 2017/18 season.

 

While FFA considered changing the design and style of the new Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, it was decided that its uniqueness was the very property that defined it. As such, FFA has stayed true to the original iconic design and modified it to reflect the new competition logo and style concepts.

 

“The Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy is unique, and over the past 12 seasons of the competition has become a symbol of the success of our teams, the commitment of our Clubs, as well as the passion of the league’s Members and fans,” said the Head of the Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke

 

“We again thank Clive Solari and his team at D3 Design who also produced the original Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, and also thank W. J. Sanders in Sydney for their fine craftsmanship in producing the new trophy.

 

“Next week we will see ten clubs begin the battle for the right to hold this iconic trophy aloft,” concluded O’Rourke.

 

Director of D3 Design Clive Solari was honoured that his company was tasked with updating the design. 

“I am proud to say that the new trophy has a modern and clean design that will continue to maintain its iconic characteristics,” Solari said.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season kicks off next Friday night (6 October) when Melbourne City FC host Brisbane Roar FC in the opening match at AAMI Park.

Wednesday 28 June 2017

 

 

Football Federation Australia today released the eagerly anticipated Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season draw.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season will kick off with a trio of blockbusting rounds featuring a Big Blue (Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory) Grand Final rematch in Round 1, a Melbourne Derby in Round 2 followed by a Sydney Derby in Round 3.

 

Melbourne City FC will host Brisbane Roar FC at AAMI Park in the opening match of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season. The following day will see an F3 Derby in the early game at Central Coast Stadium followed by the Big Blue at Etihad Stadium. Sunday’s matches start with Wellington Phoenix and Adelaide United meeting at Westpac Stadium and the first round will be completed when Perth Glory take on Western Sydney Wanderers FC at Spotless Stadium.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series will begin on the weekend of 20-22 April with the Hyundai A-League 2018 Grand Final scheduled for the weekend of 5-6 May 2018.

 

Speaking today, FFA Head of Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke, was excited about releasing the 13th edition of the competition draw.

 

“It gives me great pleasure to release the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season Draw under a new logo and brand identity,” said O’Rourke.

 

“Developing this draw has been a challenging process to accommodate the preferences of the clubs, venue availability and also the AFC Champions League 2018.

 

“We have added a new feature to this season’s draw with all clubs playing each other twice between rounds 1 to 18. The remaining nine rounds will see each club play each other once in the lead-up to the Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series. This stretch of nine Rounds will be known as “The Chase” with 27 points on offer in the run home to Round 27.

 

“This will be the first season of the Hyundai A-League under our new broadcast agreement with Fox Sports who have been a broadcast partner of the competition since 2005 and we are once again look forward to partnering with them.

 

“We are also very excited about working with our new Free-to-Air partner, Network Ten, who will be broadcasting the Harvey Norman Saturday night match and the Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series live.

 

“All in all, we believe that this draw will set the scene for another thrilling season of the Hyundai A-League,” concluded O’Rourke.
