Pararoos to face powerful USA at Cromer Park on Saturday

The United States’ best CP footballers are coming to Cromer Park on Saturday afternoon with a day to kill – or be killed.

Awaiting them will be the Australian Pararoos, the world’s 10th-ranked cerebral palsy (CP) international football team.

The Americans are ranked T4 in the world and beat Australia 5-1 in the group stage of the 2022 International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football World Cup.

But they’re on Aussie turf now. And Australia will trot out a lethal weapon: Connor Bunce, a 20-year-old Wild Thing from the West with perhaps the best left foot in CP football.

Kick-off is at 3pm Saturday February 4 at Cromer Park.
