Despite the loss, the Hockeyroos will be pleased with their efforts which saw them take the lead twice throughout the match and produce an even performance.
The fact that Australia’s two goals came from Shelly Liddelow and Ashleigh Nelson was also a positive, given that the Hockeyroos will be relying on these two strikers to perform near goals at the World Cup.
Nicole Arrold, Madonna Blyth and Kim Walker were amongst the best players for the Hockeyroos.
The Hockeyroos will play a practice match against South Africa on Friday 27th August before their first game at the World Cup on Monday 30th August against Japan.
