Pim Verbeek: Ireland closer than Australia?

So Jade North and his Asian mates couldn't fly in for an Asian Cup Qualifier v Kuwait in Canberra in March, and Australia lost as a result.

But he can head to Limerick.

And anyone knows there are no direct flights to Ireland from Korea or any other Asian city. Everyone has to fly through Heathrow or Europe, and then travel down fron Dublin to Limerick.

So not an easy place to get to.

But why Pim wouldn't bring back our Asiaroos for the Kuwait game, a game that mattered, but will now take them half-way across the World for some friendly in Europe's most Western country, Ireland.
