Mary Fowler Makes International Debut
Australian women footballer Mary Fowler made her international debut at the age of 15. Mary replaced Sam Kerr in a win against Brazil in the Tournament of Nations opener.
Mary became the fifth youngest player to feature for the Australian national women’s football team. Sharon Wass is still holding the record as she made her first appearance against New Zealand when she was 14 years old in 1981.
Glance on Fowler’s Career
Mary Fowler’s rise to fame has been impressive. She is currently playing in the NWS Women’s NPL. Bankstown City’s prolific striker made her mark for the young Matildas (Australian Young Women National team) in March this year.
A dazzling 10 goal haul for the youngster at the AFF Women’s Championship in Indonesia captivated the Aussie women coach Stajcic. The latter gave Fowler a chance when he called Fowler into his squad for the tourney in the United States.
Fowler’s Future Uncertain
Born to an Irish father, a veil of uncertainty is hanging in front of the young girl’s future. The Cairns-born player has chances of also playing for the Ireland national team. But with an early call-up into the Aussie national team, the 15-year-old has a lot to consider for her career going forward.
Her brother Quivi and her sister Ciara have represented the Irish national team at the youth level. There is little doubt that she also wants to play for the same country with her siblings one day.
Australia’s 3-1 victory against Brazil gave the Matildas the number one spot overtaking Brazil. Enjoy the many soccer-themed online pokies and other internet casino games at Reels of joy Casino in the meantime.
