Great weekend for Australian football

Aussie football is dead, long live Aussie football.

Australia produced a performance at the Asia Cup, good enough, just to sneak into the Asia Cup Semi Finals for the first time.

Sure it was close but Matt McKay, Sas Ognenovski, David Carney, Mile Jedinak and Nathan Burns were a few of the A-League made players who are not comfortable in the Green and Gold.

Harry Kewell has now played four games in a tournament and despite some journo's writing him off he still had quality and fitness to be in the right place and the right time in the 118th minute.

Not bad - Mike Cockerill and Robbie Slater take note.

A semi to look forward to.

And in Australia 32,000 watched the Melbourne Derby, 15,000 at The Gold Coast, a record crowd and 11,000 saw scintillating football from Adelaide.

With Aussies in demand across Asia - our future transfer funds/revenues are secured.

All in all a marvellous week for Australian football - enjoy the Uzbek game!
