Western United’s Kahli Johnson, Sasha Grove, Avaani Prakash and Chloe Lincoln have been announced in Australia’s under-20 team to play New Zealand later this month.

Western United football general manager Mal Impiombato said it’s fantastic to see so many of our talented players earning opportunities in the same international camp. This represents a first-ever international selection as Western United players for both Grove and Lincoln, who each joined the club from Canberra, while Prakesh earns a recall to the side.
