Soccer fans, it’s time to pull out your green and gold scarves, because the Qantas Socceroos are in town and will be taking on Oman in a crucial 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying match at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday March 26.
The last time these two teams clashed it finished in a hard fought 0-0 draw after the Australian side struggled to adapt to the oppressively hot conditions of the Sultan Qaboos Sport Complex in Muscat, Oman.
Now, back on home turf and in front of what is sure to be a fired up crowd, the Socceroos will be determined to claim a crucial victory and get back on track with their mission to secure qualification for Brazil 2014.
And with a line-up that includes the likes of returning skipper Lucas Neill, veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer and midfielder Marco Bresciano – who has already represented Australia at two previous World Cups – there is no doubt that this team has the goods.
Currently the Socceroos are tied for second in the Asia Group B round five qualification rankings with five points in total, and with four games left to play they are hoping to earn enough points to finish in one of the top two spots.
However in order for that to happen they will have to defeat Oman in a match that is sure to offer all the heart-stopping excitement that the game is known for.
The Socceroos take on Oman at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday March 26, and now is the time to secure your tickets for this must see match-up!
There will be regular CityRail trains services running on the night, as well as options for those who want to travel by bus or ferry. Best of all is that transport is absolutely free so long as you show your event ticket.
