A wonderfully gifted footballer, Harry Kewell has been thrilling Australian football fans ever since he burst on to the scene with Leeds and the Qantas Socceroos in his teens.
Kewell made 181 appearance for Leeds United, scoring 45 goals, becoming one of the most sought-after talents in the English Premier League as part of a vibrant young side, and eventually secured a dream move to Liverpool.
There he won the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup during his 93 appearances for the Reds. His standing among the Socceroo ranks soared during this time, and Kewell was arguably Australia's player of the match in the epic final 2006 World Cup qualifier in Sydney against Uruguay which sent the Socceroos to their first World Cup since 1974.
There he was a key player, scoring the crucial equalising goal against Croatia that saw Australia qualify for the second round. Kewell moved to Turkish giant Galatasaray in 2009 and continued to impress with his ability on the ball and his commitment to entertain fans.
He has remained one of the Qantas Socceroos key players and his attacking ability and experience were vital on the road to South Africa 2010. After a stint in the Hyundai A-League and for Al Gharafa in the Qatar Stars League, Kewell returned to Australia to join the Red and White of Melbourne Heart.
His presence remains a huge drawcard for fans, who will hope to see the best of one of our finest footballers. Premium Player Sponsor - Dreamstreet Home Loans (John Hronis)
