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...

He thinks about it less than he used to, but the pain will never completely go away.

Haiti international striker Fabrice Noel is one of the new imports to Singapore's S.League this season, playing for glamour club, Tampines Rovers, after a stint with Malaysia's ATM FA last season.

Turning 30 in July, Noel has carved out a successful professional career after coping with the tragedy of having two of his brothers murdered in 2002 when he was a teenager at a junior tournament in the United States.

Why Australia legend Tim Cahill must go with the flow at Shanghai Shenhua

Be careful what you eat, prepare to be kicked a lot and learn quickly that it is better sometimes just to go with the flow.

That's the advice to newly arrived Shanghai Greenland Shenhua recruit Tim Cahill from the club's former goalkeeping coach Ian Walker. The ex-England international is now working for rivals, Shanghai SIPG FC under his former Three Lions' boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Australian international Cahill made his Chinese Super League (CSL) debut last Sunday as Shenhua defeated the third...
