That Night

Description:
Wednesday, November 16, 2005. 80,000 people at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney, millions around the country couldn't believe what they had witnessed. The Socceroos, after a 32 year wait had qualified for World Cup. 32 years of heartache, despair, and a sleeping giant of Australian sport continuingly falling into a deeper and deeper sleep thanks to infighting and incompetence was awake.

Kewell, Aloisi, Viduka, Emerton, Culina, Grella, Bresciano, Popovic, Vidmar, Skoko. Who knows were the sport would be if we didn't get to the World Cup. Certainly nowhere near where it is now. The Socceroos got the attention, Australia got worldwide recognition at the 2006 World Cup, the A League grew, marquee names eventually made their way to play here, professionalism and corporate interest went to new levels, far, far removed from the days of struggle pre-2005, when the A League started.
