Coach Perrin's marvellous record a game changer for football in China

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey sits down with China head coach Alain Perrin who hopes his side can continue building their confidence ahead of their AFC World Cup qualifier against Hong Kong.

Marseille against Monaco and Portsmouth versus Southampton are among the fierce derby games that Alain Perrin has experienced first hand, but next Thursday, his coaching journey will take him to a whole new level when his China side host Hong Kong in an AFC 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The match will take place at the Bao'an Stadium in Shenzhen, less than 20 kilometres from Hong Kong, a special administrative region of China.

Only 2,200 tickets have been allocated in the 40,000 capacity stadium for...

Australia's Mathew Ryan prepares for Messi and Ronaldo at Valencia

Australia international custodian Mathew Ryan impressed during Valencia's UCL play-off first leg win against Monaco.

Australia international goalkeeper Mathew Ryan is quickly coming to terms with life as a Valencia player, and hoping Champions League play-off progress past Monaco on Tuesday night will bring many more spine-tingling big nights with his new club.

Ryan, 23, joined Valencia for €7 million from Club Brugge this summer -- having just two years ago left A-League side Central Coast Mariners in a low profile €150,000 move.

He impressed enough in Belgium to both seasons be named the Jupiler...

Postecoglou on taking Asian champs Australia to next level by 2018 WC

National coach of Australia sits down to talk to ESPN FC's Jason Dasey about the future of Australian soccer at the AFC coaches conference after the Socceroos' Asian Cup win.

Just last week, Australia's rugby team were thrashed by world champions New Zealand in Auckland. Losing to the All Blacks is never fun for the Wallabies but the 41-13 scoreline meant that coach Michael Cheika was in the firing line after making six changes to the team that beat the same opposition in Sydney a week earlier.

That is the danger with such a policy. It's great if it works, but more often than not, it will backfire.

The country's round ball representatives have gone through that process...

Postecoglou and Australia in limbo as Jedinak and co. struggle with clubs

Australia lifted the Asia Cup in January but questions have been raised over the players' lack of game time at domestic level.

"I've said all along that the key thing will be form and fitness every time I select a squad."

Those were the words uttered by Ange Postecoglou in an interview with AAP in Dec. 2013, specifically referencing then national team captain Lucas Neill and his struggle to find a club in the lead-up to a World Cup warm-up against Ecuador.

Neill eventually signed a short-term deal with Watford the day before the squad was announced but it was not enough to convince the Socceroos boss to retain his skipper....

Harry Kewell names best Socceroos XI and leaves out Tim Cahill

Harry Kewell announced himself on the international stage in 1997 with his World Cup qualifying goal in Tehran.

Harry Kewell's best ever Socceroos XI includes his one-time Melbourne Victory interim coach Kevin Muscat but has no place for the nation's all-time leading scorer, Tim Cahill. 

None of the current Australian side -- reigning Asian champions -- are named, including captain Mile Jedinak, with the core of Kewell's selections coming from the nation's so-called Golden Generation, many of whom played in the English Premier League.

Another surprise selection is former Stoke and Wigan midfielder Josip...

Former Liverpool winger Harry Kewell is loving life as Watford U21 coach

After calling time on an 18-year professional playing career, Harry Kewell is taking his first steps as a coach with Watford.

As a player, Harry Kewell strutted his stuff on football's grandest stages, including a UEFA Champions League final and two World Cups. Yet, he is relishing his new life that takes him to less glamorous destinations like Crewe, Coventry and Colchester.

Since July, the former Liverpool and Australia winger has been Watford's U21 coach. But while Watford have just been promoted to the heights of the Premier League, Harry's youngsters play in the Professional Development League 2 South. They opened...
