Viduka and Moore back, but for how Pkv Poker long?



Mark Viduka and Craig Moore, two of Australia’s stalwarts from the last World Cup in Germany, continue to refuse to commit to South Africa 2010.


But Pim Verbeek’s confident progress in charge of the Pkv Poker Socceroos is allaying fears Australia still rely on a handful of big name players to advance their international cause.


Viduka’s greatest concern is a long-standing Achilles tendon injury.


He surprised many by meeting up with the Australia squad in Brisbane ahead of their 4-0 cakewalk against Qatar, but Viduka’s long-term Socceroos future wasn’t on the agenda according Verbeek.


The Dutchman still takes Viduka’s word of last April when, on a whistlestop trip around Europe, Viduka promised he’d play a part in South Africa.


Verbeek added that the fact Viduka simply turned up in Brisbane – despite not being named in a 35-man extended training party – was proof enough of his national team commitment.


However, Viduka was primarily back home to gauge a second opinion on his troublesome injury from Socceroos medical staff, a problem which reportedly will not require surgery and might see him playing again in the English Premier League this season.


“It’s a step-by-step process to play for Australia and the first stage is to get back playing for my club again,” Viduka told the Australian press. “I don’t want to rush anything.

Reputations Pkv Poker count for nothing as Socceroos level out FIFA’s playing field



There’s a football advert doing the rounds in Australia starring Socceroos Marco Bresciano and John Aloisi.


While the pair train in an empty stadium, they are barracked by a lone voice yelling from the stands.


“How do you think you are going to beat Brazil, Socceroos,” the geriatric figure baits. “You haven’t even kicked a goal in the World Cup.”


“Brazil have kicked 191 goals,” the old-timer ridicules with a laugh.


“Here Johnny,” Bresciano prompts and from Aloisi’s Pkv Poker pass, the Parma midfielder thrashes the ball into the stands and knocks the groaning figure out cold.


“History’s Against Us,” reads the tagline. “Stuff History.”


Whether Nike are claiming any credit following last night’s display against the reigning world champions will likely be determined by the company’s next ad campaign.


But one thing’s for certain – reputations count for nothing for Guus Hiddink’s men.


The simple truth is Brazil might have lost to 42nd-ranked Australia after Harry Kewell and Mark Viduka wasted glorious chances in the second-half in Munich.


The former Leeds United pair will relive their individual moments of promise a hundred times over.


Once again, a World Cup match was decided by mere inches.


While Viduka’s second-half lob over goalkeeper Dida landed fractionally over the bar, Robinho’s 90th minute strike ricocheted off the inside of Mark Schwarzer’s post straight to the feet of grateful striker Fred.


“It was a deserved win,” coach Carlos Alberto …
