Salisbury to be Matildas' first Hall of Famer

Matildas captain and star striker Sam Kerr sits down with ESPN to share her journey from Aussie rules to soccer and what coming home to Perth truly means.

Meier set to sign for Western Sydney Wanderers

Western United FC show a glimpse of the preparations going into their debut season in the A-League.
The head of Football Federation Australia has promised that anyone found guilty of match-fixing will be banned from football for life.

Western Sydney coach Markus Babbel's disappointment with the Wanderers' limp FFA Cup loss to Melbourne City has been tempered by the impending arrival of experienced German striker Alexander Meier.

The Wanderers were dumped out of the Cup with a 3-0 quarterfinal loss to Melbourne City at AAMI Park on Wednesday night and rarely looked threatening.

Babbel refused to confirm the identity of the club's new free-agent signing but it is understood to be the 36-year-old Meier, who amassed 119 Bundesliga...

The 32-year-old defensive midfielder follows in the footsteps of former Victory star striker Besart Berisha, who won 17 caps for Albania before switching his allegiance to Kosovo.

Adelaide, Central Coast advance in FFA Cup

Adelaide United have continued their FFA Cup defence with a 1-0 quarterfinal win against Newcastle, while Central Coast scored a last-gasp knockout of Hume City.

The Reds' victory was sealed by a first-half Al Hassan Toure tap-in on Tuesday night in Adelaide.

But in Melbourne, Central Coast endured a jittery quarterfinal against Victorian Premier League outfit Hume City until a 92nd minute winner from Abraham Majok.

Amid a manic goal-mouth scramble, Majok managed to get his left boot to the ball...

Merrick blasts refs after injury rules Hoolahan out for three months

Australia's refereeing standards haven't improved in 15 years, Newcastle Jets coach Ernie Merrick says.

Merrick launched a fresh blast after his prized overseas signing Wes Hoolahan suffered a serious ankle injury which will sideline him for at least three months.

Hoolahan was hurt in Newcastle's 1-0 loss to Adelaide United in Tuesday night's FFA Cup quarterfinal.

Merrick says the initial prognosis on the Republic of Ireland international is an ankle syndesmosis injury which will take at least 12...
