The game of our lives. Australia v Ghana

We need the game of our lives.

Not to win, not to have a chance of qualifying. Merely to show the World that we don't capitulate, we don't give up, we're a proud nation and we really are able to compete on the World Stage no matter how difficult it might seem for us.

And right now it seems difficult.

And the next Australian Coach must have a clause in his contract telling him never to talk the local game down, instead to build a home squad, over four years as other countries do, to supplement the perceived better talent abroad.

Japanese and Koreans have many home-based players; it's time we spent the extra time our A-League players have each year in camp working on improving their potential. Let's get serious with the local boys!
