South Melbourne qualify for Australia Cup Round of 32


By Bill Roumeliotis

After Heidelberg United, South Melbourne FC has become the second Greek team to qualify for the round of 32 of the Australia Cup.

On Wednesday, June 12 at Lakeside Stadium and in the context of the last qualifying round in the Victoria group, South Melbourne defeated St Albans Dinamo FC 1-0.

Nahuel Bonada scored the “golden” goal for South Melbourne in the 49th minute with a high-hanging shot. Esteban Quintas’ side could have scored more goals if they had been more clear-headed in crucial phases.

In the end, South Melbourne returned to the Australia Cup Round of 32 for the first time in three years, while also qualifying for the semi-final of Victoria’s Dockerty Cup.
