About the Show
Before the 2006 World Cup made the Socceroos household names in Australia, many of the players had already achieved superstar status overseas. With elite European leagues offering wealth, fame and career advancement for talented, hard-working footballers, players like Harry Kewell, John Aloisi and Mark Schwarzer found the lure of foreign fields irresistible. The Socceroos now open up and talk about the opportunities and difficulties of establishing new careers and lives overseas as well as the emotional triumph of competing on the world stage for their homeland.
