22 June 2018 7:06 AM All the scenarios: Socceroos' World Cup fate could come down to a raffle

The towering centre forward intelligently held up two challengers 37

21 June 2018 5:12 PM Van Marwijk frustrated Australia did not get all three points

Socceroo boss Bert van Marwijk could only rue his team's inability to convert its second half chances as he contemplated another good Australia performance which did not get the reward it deserved.

I know, I know. You’ve been tossing and turning in the wee hours of the morning, wondering who to support as the Socceroos take on Denmark on Thursday night. On the one hand, you’re as Australian as Uluru, Vegemite, thongs, burnt snags, and getting a little teary when you hear 'I come from a land Down Under'. Because you do! You were born and raised 37
