DID YOU KNOW?

The same away kit has already been used in the season before and only the home kit had been changed.

 

2001 was overall a successful year of the Socceroos with two world records victories against Tonga and American Samoa as well as the 3rd place at the Confed Cup hosted in Japan & South Korea.

The Socceroos were able to beat France as well as Brazil each with 1-0 and reached another great result

against France (1-1) in a re-match hosted in Australia (Melbourne). This match has taken place only 9 days before the final World Cup qualifier matches against Uruguay to be a good test.

 

The Socceroos did well against Uruguay with a 1-0 success in Australia (Melbourne) but couldn´t stand the pressure in Montevideo (Uruguay) after a painful 3-0 loss. The World Cup dream again was just blown away and the disappointment couldn´t been put into words. The Socceroos have shown that they are able to beat the big football nations which could also be good enough for a World Cup tournament but the reality was a different story when it always came to the decisive first and second leg game.

Year: 2003, friendly match vs England hosted in London "Upton Park" (England)

 

Result: England 1 - 3 Australia (February 12th)

 

Match worn by: Tony Popovic #6

 

Probably one of the top 10 football victories the Socceroos ever had although this game against England was just a friendly match without any important relevance. But for all aussie supporters, especially based in UK, was that day remarkable after a clear victory over the "Lions" of the British Empire.

 

Till today one favourite slogan during a football match of the aussie supporters: 3-1 at the Upton Park

Kit: away

Year: 2003, friendly match vs Republic of Ireland hosted in Dublin (Ireland)

 

Result: Ireland 2 - 1 Australia (August 19th)

 

Match worn by: Mark Schwarzer #1

 

This shirt used to be worn for an OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) cup match and therefore the patch on the sleeve. It was then provided to be the match shirt against Ireland but the green colour was too equal with the Irish kit which made the officals changing the goal keeper shirt in gold colour before kick off.

Kit: away

 

Year: 2002 - 2003

 

Match worn by: (unknown) #12

 

There is no certain information when exactly this kit has been worn. It could have been a friendly match

or probably a match of an U23, U20 or a U17 team.

Other than the original kit for this shirt a white coloured number as been used.

Kit: home

 

Year: 2004 Adidas kit launch

 

The new kit of the Socceroos in 2004 was ready to be launched and we believe that this shirt would have become one of the most liked dress of Socceroos supporters. A nice traditional green and gold colour combination with a beautiful number/player name set as well as the Australian flag for the very first time on one sleeve.

 

This kit finally is the end and the beginning of a new Socceroos football history.

After a 20 years business partnership between the FFA and Adidas the Australian football association

decided to resign the contract with Adidas.

Year: 2004 Adidas kit launch

 

Even the away kit looks quite beautiful with the marine blue and white colour.

Really a pity that the Socceroos have never worn this Adidas kit in 2004.
