High-flying Sydney dream big in W-League | Ralph Lauren

Must Read


They are the W-League’s perfect leaders and Sydney FC forward Cortnee Vine can see no reason why the Sky Blues cannot take their form all the way to a premiership and beyond.

A 4-0 win over Canberra United on Monday means at the halfway point in their season Sydney have played six, won six, scored 15 and conceded just one goal.

Nearest challengers Brisbane lie in wait on Sunday at Leichhardt Oval, with the Roar’s Matilda-heavy lineup hitting form in recent weeks including an Emily Gielnik-inspired 2-1 win over Western Sydney on Thursday.

Rather than being concerned about maintaining Sydney’s 100 per cent record to the season against her old club, however, Vine says the Roar are facing a team almost overflowing with belief.

“The vibes are very good at the moment. We’re having a cracker of a season and hopefully we’ll just keep going,” she said.

“I can’t see us really breaking form at the moment. I feel like we’re getting better each game.

“Our training sessions are very intense and we’re having the best time … it’s ours for the losing.”

An Australia under-17 and under-20 representative, Vine is absolutely aiming to break into the Matildas setup ahead of a huge period for the national team which includes this year’s Olympics, the 2022 Asian Cup and the 2023 World Cup on home soil.

Vine has formed a lethal attacking trio for the Blues along with Princess Ibini and Remy Siemsen and the 22-year-old expects their W-League combination to attract the attention of new Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson.

“I love our front three. We’ve played together in under-20s for a while now,” Vine said.

“Princess Ibini is absolutely killing it, I hope she gets the recognition she deserves. Same as Remy Siemsen and the rest of the squad actually.

“We’re all guns.”
