ON A dusty field punctuated by
stones and rubble, soldiers serving
on Operation Astute recently played
a friendly game of soccer against a
local team wearing strips donated by
A-League teams Melbourne Victory
and Melbourne Heart.
Since 2006, Australian troops
deployed to East Timor have built
close relationships with local commu-
nities, with soccer proving one of the
best ways to communicate and build
The game, which the Aussies won
4-2, was the brainchild of Maj Peter
A soccer referee in Australia, Maj
Amaricai said a team comprising pre-
dominantly Victorian soldiers from
the International Security Force main
base in Dili was invited to compete
against local community team Succo
Aldeida. The Aussies wore the shirts
from Victory and the East Timorese
wore the shirts from Heart.
"The pitch was a far cry from the
grassy conditions of most football
fields in Australia," Maj Amaricai said.
"Sappers were called in to level
parts of the ground to make it as playa-
ble as possible for everyone. The local
community will now also be able to
use the ground safely in the future."
Three cheers for East Timor at the
Sport builds goodwill
Aussie troops win soccer friendly by two goals in Dili heat
end of the match were returned by
warm applause by locals who turned
out to watch the unusual derby.
Maj Amaricai said the match balls
and some additional A-League jerseys
were presented to the local village
chief, Jose Pereira de Olivera, after
"The match reinforced strong com-
munity links that have developed over
the years Australian troops have been
present in the area," he said.
