As we celebrate a century of Socceroos memories in the lead-up to September’s series against New Zealand, each week we have been looking back at a major tournament the team have played in over the years.
We’ve worked back in time, covering 11 tournaments that are all significant parts of our story: the 2018 FIFA World Cup, 2015 AFC Asian Cup, 2014 FIFA World Cup, 2010 FIFA World Cup, 2006 FIFA World Cup, 1997 Confederations Cup, 1992 Olympics, 1988 Gold Cup, 1974 FIFA World Cup, 1967 Friendly Nations Tournament and the 1956 Olympics.
Our ninth piece looks at the Socceroos’ first World Cup campaign at the 1974 FIFA World Cup in West Germany.
Read on to re-live the tournament in detail, and keep an eye on the Socceroos’ social media channels for more special content, and a chance to share your memories of these matches.
