Socceroo International Games

 

 

 

Explanatory note
The archive is divided into 'A' matches and 'B' internationals where 'A' internationals are matches played by the Australian national team where the federations of both competing countries endorsed the match. The second group known as 'B' internationals are those international matches which don't fit into the 'A' category.

 

There is again some conjecture in this division with some statisticians preferring to call certain matches 'A' internationals when in fact they were possibly 'B' matches and vice versa. Here only those matches recognised by the FA's of both competing nations are 'A' games, other 'B' games are matches against club sides, B teams and some training matches whilst on tour. We have also included Australian XI and Australia B games in B matches archive. We are happy to get assistance from anyone who might be able to help. See the Contact us link to get in touch if you have any data to share.

 

For even more information on the 1974 Socceroos we suggest you check out Andre Krueger's Southern Cross site

 

Also the FFA have gone to some lengths to introduce a caps system to recognise players to have represented Australia. In order to do so they had to draw a line in the sand and while we may not agree on which matches are full internationals we list the cap honours in line with their decisions.
