Remarks at the Socceroos 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Celebrations

16 Nov 2017
Prime Minister


Congratulations Socceroos!

29 months, 22 games and last night you’ve qualified and you’re on the way to Moscow and the World Cup.

And today is 12 years since John Aloisi scored that goal against Uruguay.

Mark Milligan was there, he was there, he was just a child at the time. He’s still in the team.

What a fantastic anniversary. What a great game.

Mile Jedinak, the Captain – 3 goals. That’s the captain’s knock. The captained knocked three times. Great job.

Great job Socceroos!

On to the World Cup. On to Russia. On to victory!

Good luck!
