Jason Dasey and Gary Phillips assess what Australia must improve upon ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

        Australia won the inaugural Tournament of Nations with their third and most decisive victory of the competition over Brazil. 
            
        Australia's Mark Milligan and Bailey Wright recap a long qualifying campaign and what to expect from them at the World Cup. 

Australia's Sam Kerr is on the three-player shortlist for the Asian Women's Player of the Year, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced on Saturday.
Kerr was controversially excluded from the final list of nominees for FIFA equivalent award in September, despite a stellar season for the Matildas and Perth Glory. Japan's Saki Kumagai and Sung Hyang-Sim of North Korea are also on the shortlist, but Kerr is the front runner to win the top prize.

But he was never meant to be here in the first place.
Coppell's India odyssey took a sharp turn in July 2017. Indian Super League's (ISL) newest entrants, Jamshedpur FC, had convinced the man - who was on the verge of getting back to the Kerala Blasters for a second season - to sign for them for their first outing in professional football.
