I’VE said the Asian Cup would be bigger than the World Cup and Saturday will be one of the best moments in Australian football, Tim Cahill writes.

    A SOCCER World Cup Down Under could soon become a reality after FIFA president Sepp Blatter said Australia deserved to host the world’s biggest football tournament.

    IN the quaint surrounds of Chatswood Oval, Australia captain Michael Clarke made his return from injury and notched a half-century on a tricky pitch.

    TRAINER Peter Morgan hopes to emulate his father Ron and put an Adelaide Cup in the trophy cabinet.

    NOVAK Djokovic will need every minute of Saturday’s rest day to be primed for a shot at a fifth Australian Open singles crown.
