Harry Loses Kewell

June 21st, 2006 · No Comments · FIFA World Cup, Football (Soccer)

Australian striker Harry Kewell lost his cool and had words to say with the central referee after the Socceroos game the other night. He was obviously upset and disappointed with the seemingly one-sided free kick count against Australia and his lack of finishing with the chances he had. But the way he showed his disappointment was not a good example to the thousands of young soccer fans that were watching, and FIFA understandably take a hard line against such actions. Fortunately for Australia’s chances he was cleared to play in the next match, an important one for Australia looking to make it through to the second round. But it would be good if he could still make amends for it. Maybe with a some good sportsmanship and a winning performance in the next game we will forgive him.
