Welcome Back Harry

It was good last night to again see Harry Kewell in the gold and green again as the Socceroos played their last warm up match against Singapore before the Asian Cup that begins next week. He came on with about half an hour to go and had an immediate impact on the performance of the team. On the game itself, the Australians produced a lacklustre first half, where the Singaporeans were unlucky not to take the lead. The Australians were looking like they were feeling the effects of a hard week of training, with only the two Marks, Bresciano and Viduka being standouts. Brett Holman put in a few good efforts but his finishing left a lot to be desired. I also thought that throughout the whole game, the defense left a lot to be desired, allowing the Singaporeans some great opportunities on goal. This part of the team's game needs to be looked at if the team is to be seriously challenging for the Asian Cup title. With an early goal to Viduka in the second half and the introduction of Kewell the team lifted and they finished their foe off with a 3-0 win, with a further goal to Viduka and one to Kewell.

Welcome back Harry!
