Lisa De Vanna broke her leg in a nasty collision with the Chinese goalkeeper, part way through last night’s qualifier for the Asian Cup. Australia will still make the semis but we’ve lost our best striker. As Tony Tannous at the Roar said,
“The team appears to have evolved since the sensational effort at the 2007 World Cup. The stars though remain the left footed trio of De Vanna, Garriock and McCallum.
The latter pulls the strings from her deep-lying central midfield spot, Garriock adds the drive and quality on the ball from the left side of central midfield, while De Vanna is simply dynamite, blessed with incredible pace and wonderful ability on the ball.
She is the Harry Kewell of the women’s game, minus the injuries. Fingers crossed Kewell can emulate De Vanna’s performance come June 13.”
Best wishes for Lisa’s recovery and eventual return to the game.
