Big night out for the round ball enthusiasts – Socceroos v. Kuwait

By johnboy 20 January 2009 21

Mr Stanhope has announced that the first Australian qualifier in the Asian Football Championship will be played here in Canberra against Kuwait.

    “Since the Socceroos’ outstanding performance at the 2006 Football World Cup, the team has captured the imagination of Australia’s sporting community and many Canberrans,” Mr Stanhope said. “We’re delighted that Canberra has been chosen for this exciting match and we look forward to working with FFA to make this event a success.

    “FFA is serious about hosting the Football World Cup in 2018 and we are equally serious about ensuring Canberra Stadium is selected as one of the host venues. This match is our opportunity to showcase Canberra Stadium as a suitable venue and demonstrate Canberra’s support for international matches. We hope to attract a crowd in excess of 20,000 for the match.

I’d also suggest that anything less than a full house will be very bad news for the A-League bid.

I think there was a Socceroos match played back in 1996 but don’t quote me. …think you may be thinking of a Joeys game vs Tahiti?

it was a socceroos game, but yes against tahiti, and we won 4-0.

this will be a much better prepared squad, albeit filled with a-leaguers. i’ll be following their exploits in jakarta next week closely, should give us some idea of how they stack up.
