Australia ‘A’ are a development team, and Brent Dancer (27th) and Glenn Turner (49th) did the damage against Malaysia.
The National team suffered a humiliating 11-3 drubbing in the hands of Kookaburras, former Olympic champions, in the first match.
However, the Kookaburras only beat Canada 4-0 yesterday with goals from Des Abbott (29th), Robbie Hammond (35th), Grant Schubert (48th) and Eli Matheson (53rd).
Malaysia and Canada square off tomorrow. Australia A’s matches do not carry points, and Malaysia need to beat Canada for another rematch with the mighty Kookaburras.
Tomorrow: Canada v Malaysia; Kookaburras v Australia A.
