Australia was so close to qualifying for the 94 and 98 world cups and it seems that they have to qualify for this world cup!! In 93 the Australians were put in the situation of an almost imposible task of a playoff against argentina!!
They kept their pride and went down only 2-1 on aggregate.
4 years later a star called Harry Kewell made a big name of himself when he scored 2 goals against Iran. Australia were destined for the world cup even with some poor refereeing decisions until the Iranians played soccer for 10 minutes!!
For Australia not to qualify for the World Cup would be devastationg for Ausie soccer. And with stars like Viduka, Kewell, Okon, Bosnich they have great chance of making it!!
What do you guys think, are Australia up to the class as teams such as Colombia, Chile and Paraguay? I think so!!
A full strength Ausie line up is this in a 4-4-2 formation
Bosnich (Man Utd)
Lazaridis (Birmingham City)
Tiatto (Man City)
Zelic (1860 Munich)
They can also boast players like Aloisi(coventry), Agostino (1860 Munich, Corica(Wolves), Schwarzer(middlesbrough)
Their whole team is Euro based and who ever comes 5th in South America will have their hands full
Hopefully Chile can come 4rd
