Some Facts:

After the Confederations Cup Frank Farina finally decided to retire as the Socceroos manager (05th June 2005). The FFA then decided to hire a very experienced manager

on European and International level. Guus Hiddink should become the person who leads Australia to the 2006 World Cup in Germany and so he did.

Thanks to Frank Farina as a successful player and manager of the Socceroos.

A heartbeat penalty shootout in which Australia had the better goalkeeper with legendary Mark Schwarzer who saved two penalties.
