Socceroos stars Adam Taggart, Jason Davidson and James Holland will take part in a global live streamed Facebook event from Australia today (Tues) from 5pm AEST where they’ll be guests of SBS TV’s David Zdrilic.

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.
