25th July 2016. By Edward Stratmann. It was encouraging to see Aaron Mooy look so comfortable playing against the intensity and quality of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. The Australian, who's just been loaned out to Huddersfield Town, having recently joined Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, appeared unfazed by the step up in class throughout his 45 minutes of action.
Mooy, formerly of A-League side Melbourne City, rightfully received rave reviews for his excellent performance. The local newspaper certainly didn't waste anytime in voicing their satisfaction with the new signing. "On a night when a sell out crowd came to the John Smith's Stadium, there was one man wearing blue and white stripes who stood out above the rest," wrote Alexandra Porter of the Huddersfield Examiner.
"Aaron Mooy continues to win the hearts and minds of supporters with a string of accomplished pre-season displays to kick off his loan from Manchester City."
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is interesting: in terms of AFC 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification processes, the AFC qualifiers are nearly as large an undertaking as the UEFA qualifiers. For the 2018 World Cup qualifying competition, UEFA will have 52 teams battling across seven groups of six and two groups of five.

As a result, AFC qualification is a good deal more competitive and complicated than UEFA qualification, involving a longer process with numerous rounds. Needless to say, trying to predict which AFC teams will make it to the World Cup can be a challenging thing-particularly because
It's a funny piece of trivia that the Australia soccer jersey, worn by the players of the Australia national association football team, looks an awful lot like the corresponding shirts worn by the players from the Brazil national football team. Indeed, both teams wear yellow home jerseys with green trim, and both disparate jerseys are designed and manufactured by Nike. Consequently, the only factor that really differentiates the home shirts from the two teams is the team crests that are embroidered on the breast.
For these reasons and since Brazil is the host country at this year's FIFA World Cup event there is a good chance that Australia fans will be opting for their away shirts for the bulk of the competition, so as not to be confused as Brazil supporters. In fact, the Australia 2014 World Cup away jersey has been selling quite well at Soccer Box; with its navy coloring and yellow trim presenting a nice differentiation from Brazil's 2014 away match kits (which have no trim and
As kickoff day draws every closer, fans are eagerly awaiting the first sightings of the bright yellow Australia football shirt on the field in Brazil. This year marks the fourth occasion on which the Australian national team will be representing their home country in the FIFA World Cup tournament held in Brazil this year. While the Socceroos have a relatively empty schedule until the World Cup kicks off in June, there is still plenty to enjoy about Australian club football.
You can purchase your own Australia home jersey 2014 to show your support for the Socceroo's at their fourth ever World Cup appearance. These four time OFC champions rely on the support of their diehard fans to get them through what looks to be one of the toughest World
