AFC Asian Cup Draw - Live
The Socceroos will be looking to improve on their 2006 World Cup Finals showing in Germany, with the 2007 AFC Asian Cup firmly in their sights.
Having successfully negotiated the qualifying phase as group winners ahead of Bahrain and Kuwait, the finals now await in July 2007. The next step in the process is tonight's draw, being held in Kuala Lumpur, capital of host country Malaysia (one of four host countries).
