This is fantastic for International footy. It makes you think that they (the AFL) just might of underestermated the strenght of these juniors and would have been highly embarassed if they had beaten an aussie side. It would not have surprised me, as junior Kiwi sides have done it in the past! Now they are split, it is probably only a dream!

You'd have to hope that Canada, Denmark, Sweden and the UK can get kids in the world squad, that, obviously will be dominated by South AFrica. Possibly out of Asia too??

The question is as to whether the budget will be stretched enough to ensure that there's at least one kid from each region/nation with junior programs - - even if just to be a part of the squad and to bring stories of adventure back home.

This is all pretty exciting,

now, all we need is for Simon Crean to come good on his 'Australian football as an export product' and sign a couple of blank cheques as the Aust Fed Govt seems to have a want to do for soccer. How well spent would $10 million of Fed Funds be in this area???
