Annalie Antonia Longo (born 1 July 1991) is a female association football player who represented New Zealand at international level.[2] She is a student at Auckland's Epsom Girls' Grammar School and played for Sydney FC in the Australian W-League.

Career[edit]

Longo made her full Football Ferns debut in a 0-3 loss to China PR on 14 November 2006, becoming New Zealand's youngest senior football international,[3] and represented New Zealand at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup finals in China,[4] where they lost to Brazil 0-5, Denmark (0-2) and China PR (0-2). Longo is the second youngest player to represent any country at a senior FIFA World Cup.[3]

Longo also represented New Zealand at the 2006 Women's U-20 World Cup finals where she played in all three games.

She scored New Zealand's first goal at the 2008 inaugural FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup although they were effectively eliminated from contention in the 1-2 loss to Denmark, having previously lost 0-1 to Canada in the opening game.[5]

Longo was again included in the U-20 squad for the 2008 Women's U-20 World Cup finals to be played in Chile, featuring in 2 of their three group games.[6] In 2010 she represented New Zealand at a third Under-20 World Cup, this time in Germany, appearing in all three group games.[7]
