Anna Black: This Girl Can Play
29 Mar. 2021
Texi Smith's fourth 'unashamed football novel' takes a detour from Jarrod Black and introduces us to Jarrod's younger sister, Anna. A product of suburban Sydney's large grassroots clubs, Anna blossoms into being a local star turning out for Australia's biggest W-League clubs, and a regular starter with the Matildas. 'Anna Black - this girl can play' charts Anna's football journey culminating in the Matildas reaching the final of the 2023 World Cup on home soil and a move to the USA, as well as her life journey as she discovers that falling head-over-heels - something she thought was not for her - can and does happen.
