    Asian Cup 2015 fever comes to Centennial Parklands

Asian Cup Media and ex-Players Teams

Recently some of our Socceroo heroes of yesteryear came to Centennial Parklands for a kick-about to begin the build up to the Asian Cup 2015 tournament.

Ex-Socceroos Craig Moore, Mark Bosnich and Alan Davidson were on hand for a rugged game on McKay Oval in Centennial Park. They may be well-retired now, but once the round ball was placed on the ground and the competitive spirits came out!

Here is a little more history on the tournament:
