Jets training off for players to witness Australia’s night of Glory

Australia vs Denmark

All Newcastle Jets training was cancelled on Thursday morning to give all Academy players the opportunity to watch Australia’s night of glory in the FIFA World Cup.

In the third and final match of Group D against Denmark, Australia recorded a 1-0 victory which secured second spot in the group and a place in the final 16!

This is the second time in Australia’s history we have reached the Final 16, 2006 being the first! Our opponent in this knockout phase of the World Cup is twice world Champion Argentina!

The difference in pedigree is enormous and the Argentinian captain Lionel Mesi, will be playing in his last world cup. The match will be played on Sunday 4th December at 6:00am.

Australia’s road to glory finds them against an opponent who is a favourite for the title.

Whatever happens on Sunday morning, these performances by the Socceroos are the bread and butter for the young Newcastle Jets players who wake up at 5.30 every morning to go to training. They serve as a role model for every young Australian footballer, that if you work hard enough, anything is possible in the World Game.

Good luck Australia.
