Facebook Australia has partnered with World Cup official football broadcaster SBS to interview three members of the 30-man Socceroos squad for Brazil live later today.
Joining ex-Socceroo striker and SBS football analyst Zdrilic will be James Holland, Adam Taggart and Jason Davidson.
"This is a unique opportunity for Facebook's 12 million Australian users and 3.4 million soccer fans to get close to the Socceroos and ask them the burning questions ahead of the World Cup," Facebook Australia's Managing Director William Easton said.
Socceroos fans are invited to submit their questions here https://www.facebook.com/SBSTheWorldGame.

“Our partnership with Facebook further strengthens our history, and also brings Facebook's audience to the carnival with us."
