Socceroos On The Come Up

The only national team I care about is our football team. In fact, one of the few times I'm conscious of being Australian is when I'm cheering our lads on in 'the beautiful game.' Fuck cricket. Fuck swimming. Fuck rugby.

So it's exciting to see that Australia's finest have attained a FIFA world ranking of 28, the highest that they have ever achieved.

The Socceroos played 13 matches in 2008, managing eight wins, three draws and two losses.

Their best performances included two big wins over Qatar, a shock 2-1 friendly win over the Netherlands in September and gutsy away wins over Iraq and Uzbekistan.

Next up is Japan in Sydney in February. If we win that, we're going to the next World Cup for sure.
