The Caltex Socceroos are back in Sydney on March 28 and it's an absolutely crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier against a rising power in the region, UAE.
Here are five reasons why you should be at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.
It's the Mooy and Rogic show
The midfield duo have been in sensational form over the last 18 months for both club and country.
Aaron Mooy has been one of the best players in the English Championship with Huddersfield Town, while Tommy Rogic is scoring goals and exciting fans with legendary clb Celtic in Scotland.
Put them together in the green and gold in this type of form and it equals fabulous entertainment.
Cahill's magical 50 milestone?
Australia’s greatest-ever scorer Tim Cahill has 49 international goals to his name, needing just one more to bring up a wonderful half century in the green and gold.
If he doesn't get on the scoresheet in Tehran a few days earlier, he could reach his milestone in the city he grew up.
Cahill’s in excellent form, banging the goals in consistently for Melbourne City in the Hyundai A-League, while his last goal for Australia was the late winner against the UAE in Abu Dhabi.
A good omen?
Nothing like midweek football
Nothing breaks up the working week like getting out to a game and what better way to spend your Tuesday night than watching two of the AFC’s best attacking sides battle it out.
It’s got to be better than staying in and watching My Kitchen Rules or the Bachelor!
The masterful "Arabian Messi" is in town
There's the "Kiwi Messi" at Victory. And UAE’s star playmaker Omar Abdulrahman needs no introduction, wowing crowds on his last visit to Australia for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.
His touch, vision and passing ability is second-to-none, a major reason why he was voted the AFC Player of the Year for 2016.
And check out the goal he scored just this week. He's a baller.
