Chloe Logarzo in tears after Australia’s victory
Chloe Logarzo in tears after Australia’s victory.
Australia made it to a historic World Cup semi-final.
Then star Chloe Logarzo burst into tears.
– I am so proud, she says in Australian Optus Sport.
When Tony Gustavsson’s World Cup squad was reduced from 29 to 23 players, Kansas City star Chloe Logarzo did not get a place.
Without Logarzo, “The Mathildas” has written history. The nation knocked out France on penalties to advance to the nation’s first World Cup semi-final.
Meanwhile, Chloe Logarzo followed the drama from the Optus Sports television studio.
After the match – which Cortnee Vine decided – she burst into tears.
– I can’t even explain it, Logarzo said in the broadcast.
– We have run out of words. Tears are flowing. It’s huge. The first Australian team advances to the semi-finals. We need a drink or ten, but what an icy moment from Cortnee Vine.
She describes being proud, rather than disappointed, to not be part of the triumph.
– And I’m so proud of the players who missed those penalties, they stood up because it takes a lot of courage to be able to do that. And I couldn’t be prouder than that we are making history. And I can just feel how amazing it feels and I’m so proud.
