Former Australia striker Alistair Edwards has scaled the heights of Asian and international football, winning a major Cup final, representing his country at senior level in Argentina and coaching in the A-League.

Now he's at a little-known Malaysian third division club, expected to work wonders -- and yet he wouldn't want it any other way.

Since January, the one-time lethal forward of Singapore and Malaysia -- and, more recently, head coach of Perth Glory -- has been Technical Director of fledgling...

How former Spurs star Gary Stevens went from hero to zero in Thailand

The increasingly fleeting nature of professional football is often in contrast to the longer term loyalty of fans. That was underlined last weekend when an admirer of ex-England defender-turned-coach Gary Stevens flew 9500 kilometres to see his hero on the touchlines for Thai Premier League club Army United FC.

Little did the traveller know that former Tottenham Hotspur star Stevens had been "rested" by the club just 24 hours before Army's Saturday trip to BEC Tero Sasana.

"Rested" is the new buzzword...

Former Benfica midfielder Kaz Patafta hopes to be given a second chance at international football in June, when Southeast Asian minnows Laos embark on their World Cup qualifying campaign in a tough group that includes 2002 semifinalists South Korea.

Last week, Patafta completed his transfer to Lao Premier League side Lanexang United FC from Khon Kaen United in the Thailand third tier, with the aim of earning his first senior cap.

But it might easily have been different for the 26-year-old, whose...

Macedonia stalemate gives Socceroos taste of World Cup qualifying to come

Asian Cup champions Australia failed to scale the heights of their Germany performance against minnows Macedonia.

From the highs of going toe-to-toe with world champions Germany on their own patch, to the lows of playing against European minnows in a half-empty stadium on a freezing Monday night ... the Socceroos have experienced both extremes over the past five days.

While their 0-0 draw away to Macedonia may seem like a frustrating and largely pointless exercise to some, it could actually give Australia a taste of what is to come in their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Winning ugly is what Australia...

Japan, Iran, Qatar keep Asian flag flying after Australia's heroics

A new-look Japan took the field on Friday night in Valid Halilhodzic's first game in charge, yet it was the old guard who came off the bench in Oita to secure a 2-0 win over Tunisia. It was a solid result and a satisfactory performance.

The Bosnian, who led Algeria to the last 16 at the 2014 World Cup, had promised to shake up a team that has looked in need of exactly that over the past few months. There were only two survivors from the 11 that started the last game, the quarterfinal of the 2015...

Socceroos' fringe players impress against world champions Germany

Pessimistic fans might point to the fact that Germany started without many of their stars as they were held at home to a 2-2 draw by Australia in Wednesday night's international friendly. But the Socceroos were missing at least five regulars themselves, including both central defenders and talisman Tim Cahill -- who unhinged Japan on the same ground in Kaiserslautern almost nine years ago.

In a result that will no-doubt please Aussie manager Ange Postecoglou, it was Australia's...
