    Oct 5, 2017 | The Mercury

    SOCCEROOS coach Ange Postecoglou remained steadfast in his belief that his players would complete the first of their World Cup playoff missions in Tuesday's return leg against a spirited Syria.

    Oct 5, 2017 | The Times of Israel

    Omar al-Soma's disputed late penalty kept Syria's World Cup dream alive on Thursday as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Australia and set up a nerve-jangling play-off second leg in Sydney.

  11. Historic Popa's 'astonishing' Asian football snubRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 5, 2017 | The Mercury

    OUTSIDE of coverage in his homeland it's astonishing how little interest or reaction there's been across Asia to Tony Popovic's appointment at Turkish club Karabukspor - one of the incredibly rare times that an Asian coach has managed to land a job in a top flight European league. Perhaps it speaks to insularity in nations across the continent or perhaps to the leaning disdain that Australia is still held with elsewhere in the region, but make no mistake this appointment is a historic one and should be greeted with the same kind of fanfare that regularly meets the transfer of Asian players to Europe.

    Sep 26, 2017 | The Mercury

    WHEN Ange Postecoglou reverted to his new formation in March, with the Socceroos about to play Iraq in Iran, he explained he was trying to get the most out of all the various strengths and weaknesses in his squad. An extra defender was supposed to add some insurance; two No.6s would help Australia dictate the terms through the middle of the park working alongside creative talents in No.10 positions; that dominance was supposed to then open space out wide.

    Kevin Muscat might avoid his midfield selection dilemma in round one of the new A-League season because Mark Milligan is away on Socceroos duty in Malaysia and thus unavailable for the grand final rematch with champions Sydney FC.
