Young Matildas fined over China brawl

Football Federation Australia will interview players, coaching staff and management of the Young Matildas after being fined $US4,000 ($A4,760) for Australia's part in a mass brawl against China in the under 19 women's championship earlier this week.

The Asian Football Confederation handed down the fine after the teams and backroom personnel were involved in a brawl after China scored a 2-1 win in a group B matched at Hankou Sport Culture Stadium last Monday.

The brawl erupted after the final whistle, shortly after Australian defender Jessica Seaman was sent off on the stroke of fulltime.

An Australian player fell to the ground as the players were leaving the pitch and Young Matildas captain Tameka Butt reportedly sprinted across the field and confronted Chinese players before the incident escalated into a brawl.

The Australians were subsequently pelted with water bottles as they left the field.

FFA head of corporate and public affairs Bonita Mersiades revealed on Thursday the AFC had imposed a fine.

"The AFC have held an inquiry and they have fined us US$4,000," Mersiades told AAP.

She said the FFA would not be appealing the punishment and would talk to players and team management after they arrived home from China.

"We are waiting till the team and coaches and the team management get back and we can assess the circumstances of what happened," Mersiades said.

"Obviously we have statements from some of the relevant people, but we have not been properly able to assess the situation and the circumstances at this stage."

She said the FFA had not yet been able to view any footage of the brawl.

Mersiades said the FFA couldn't make any further comment at this stage on any enquiry into the brawl and said it had not yet appointed an individual to conduct any investigation.

The Young Matildas failed to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament despite finishing their group phase with an emphatic 4-0 win over Taiwan.

Their failure to advance to the last four also eliminated Australia from next year's under 20 women's World Cup.
