When the Qantas Socceroos take on Lebanon, Mark Schwarzer could become the first Australian player to earn 100 caps in A internationals - and now's your chance to ask him anything.
When the Qantas Socceroos take on Lebanon in Beirut early on Friday morning, there is a very good chance that goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer will become the first Australian player to earn 100 caps in A internationals.
There-s not much we need to say about Schwarzy - the man-s a legend, on and off the field, and arguably the most consistent Australian football export ever.
He-s been the first name of the Qantas Socceroos team sheet for more than a decade, played at two FIFA World Cup finals - hopefully a third - and has been involved in so many memorable Qantas Socceroos moments it-s hard to single out just one.
But now-s your chance. To celebrate Mark Schwarzer-s 100th cap, we-re letting the fans find out anything they want about Australia-s No.1.
Post your question to Mark Schwarzer in the comments below and we-ll put the best ones to him ahead of the Qantas Socceroos friendly against Lebanon.
It might be about that shoot-out against Uruguay, facing Brazil at the World Cup how what he does to get through so many long flights to play for his country? Who was his best coach? What was his toughest game? Toughest opponent? It-s your call - ask Schwarzer and we-ll find out from the big man himself.
