Match worn by: unknown #20

 

Probably known as Australias most painful memory in football history. To us a very nice design with many successful games in the period of 1997 - 1998 but this kit also reminds us most to the

World Cup Qualify home game vs Iran and its heart-breaking result.

(Iran 1-1 Australia; Australia 2-2 Iran - away goal rule)

 

But it was also the beginning of a long football career of Australias rising star Harry Kewell who has scored in both games against Iran. Known as the "Wizard of Oz" Harry Kewell will be part of the Socceroos till 2012.

Year: 1997 - 1998

 

match worn by: Paul Wade #6

 

In 1996 one of the Socceroos legends Paul Wade retired from the Australian National football team.

His final international game was on 1st November 1996 in Canberra against Tahiti in the 1996

OFC Nations Cup final, which Australia won.

 

Till today Paul Wade belongs to the most capped players in the country's history.

In his 10 years career as a Socceroo he played 84 games with 10 goals in total.

Truely an aussie till he dies.

This was something completely new with a predominately green outfit and a thick gold stripe down the middle. It was the well known Ajax Amsterdam look in australian colours.

 

From 1999 till 2000 Australia did not play any special match and players of the young Socceroos generation had the chance to show their skills in friendly matches.

 

Probably the most special match in 1999 took place in Sydney with the official opening of the main Sydney Olympic Stadium. Australia played a friendly game against a chosen eleven of FIFA.
