After criticising her for pronouncing the names of other countries and players correctly, online trolls have claimed that SBS World Cup host Lucy Zelic doesn’t know how to say the name of her own country.
‘It’s Straya. I’m not sure what those other two syllables are about’ one Twitter user said.
Despite the claims, research shows that ‘Aus-tra-li-a’ is in fact correct.
‘So disrespectful.’ One person tweeted. ‘Way too well researched’.
