Ange Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou will be fired up for a rematch with his nemesis, Craig Foster.

At last, Australian sport’s Great Rematch is upon us.

Is it the Collingwood vs St Kilda Grand Final Replay replay?  No.

Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine vs Danny Green?  No.

Michelle Ford vs Tracy Wickham?  No.

I’m talking about Craig Foster vs Ange Postecoglou.

For readers who may not be familiar with Round 1 of this epic contest, let me paint you a picture …

It is Remembrance Day, 11 November 2006.  The Young Socceroos have just crashed out of the Asian Football Confederation Championships in the quarter finals, losing 2-1 to South Korea.  By failing to make it through to the semi-finals, they have also failed to qualify for the Under 20 World Cup – to be played in Canada the following year.
