Chelsea forward Sam Kerr has become the all-time record goalscorer for Australia after netting five goals against Indonesia in an 18-0 victory in Mumbai this morning in the nation’s opening AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 group match.
Kerr went into the match sitting on 49 goals, one short of Tim Cahill’s record for Australia. The Chelsea forward netted twice in the opening 11 minutes against Indonesia as she claimed the title of Australia’s all-time top goalscorer at the international level. The 28-year-old followed up her early double with three more goals as she moved onto 54 goals for Australia.
Man City woman's Australian player Hayley Raso grabbed a brace, and her club teammate Alanna Kennedy also starred as Australia earned an 18-0 win over Indonesia in their Asian Cup curtain-raiser.
