Bad boy Vukovic bows to take Roos chance

Controversial Australian goalkeeper Danny Vukovic has promised to seize his chance after being recalled to the Socceroos squad.

The Central Coast keeper, slapped with a worldwide ban for striking a referee in last year's A-League grand final, has been called up for the Jan. 7 Asian Cup qualifier in Kuwait.

The 24-year-old was tipped to make coach Pim Verbeek's starting lineup for the first time after an excellent run of form for his club, Australian media reported.

"It's well documented what I've been through," Vukovic told the Daily Telegraph. "It's just good to be in a Socceroos squad vying for the number one spot.

"I did what I did in the grand final and took a few steps backwards. But I'm starting to get back up there and things look a lot better now."

Vukovic added: "This game realistically is my best chance ever at playing for the Socceroos."

Adelaide United keeper Eugene Galekovic and Perth Glory's Tando Velaphi are in direct competition for a place in Verbeek's starting eleven.

"Pim told me Tando, Eugene and I are on a level playing field," Vukovic said. "It's up to me now to go over there and prove I'm capable of doing the best job."

A draw in Kuwait will be enough for the Australians to qualify for the 2011 Asian Cup finals in Qatar.

Fulham's Mark Schwarzer is Australia's first choice goalkeeper but will miss the match due to club commitments.
