Four Wanderers into semis at AFF U15 Championships

Four Wanderers into semis at AFF U15 Championships

The Joeys are into the semi-finals of the AFF U15 Youth Championships after rounding out the group stage with a win over Laos on Monday night.

George Antonis, Alexis Bonetig, Oliver Kalac and Mark Natta from the Wanderers Academy are all part of Tony Vidmar’s 23-man squad

The Joeys prevailed 3-1 to finish second in Group A behind host nation Thailand. 

Against Laos, scores were locked at 1-1 at the break after Jaiden Kucharski’s goal was cancelled out by a reply from Chony Wenpaserth.

But a second-half brace from Melbourne City’s Giovanni Stellitano in the first 15 minutes after the break saw the youngsters run out comfortable winners.

The Joeys will play the winners of Group B in their semi-final, which will be decided later on Tuesday night after those nations play their final matches.

Australia’s likely semi-final opponent will be Vietnam, with the match to be played on Thursday night.

The event is a lead-up tournament to the 2018 AFC U16 Championship Qualifiers which take place in September.
