Double dutch duo set to take us to 2010 World Cup

According to Melbourne's The Age, Dutchman Dick Advocaat is set to become the next coach of Australia after he finishes his current deal with Russian club, Zenit St Petersburg in November. It is believed he is to take charge of the team for the 2010 World Cup campaign. I think this is a good thing for the national team as not only does Advocaat have experience along the lines of Guus Hiddink, but he also has significant experience within Asian, having coached South Korea and the UAE. We are going to need this type of experience if we are going to be succesful in this region. Advocaat will team up with Rob Baan, our current technical director to giving us a distinctly Dutch style to our national setup. After these current days of turmoil its good to see the FFA has finally played their hand.
