A Year to go..

In 2005, when John Aloisi sent his penalty kick into the net Australia was the final team to qualify for the 2006 World Cup. After the Finals, Australia moved to the Asian Confederation, and with a scoreless draw this morning against Qatar, Australia was one of the first teams to qualify for the 2010 World Cup (in South Africa), and the first time Australia has qualified for two consecutive tournaments.

During the qualifiers this morning, the hosts South Africa were joined by Japan, South Korea, Australia, and the Netherlands. Hard to believe that the next World Cup is only 53 weeks away.
