The Australian team's performance in the 2006 World Cup gave soccer back home in Australia a great publicity boost, and with this momentum the national team continued their success and qualified again for the 2010 World Cup.

In 2010, Australia had a poor showing in the first game against Germany, but redeemed themselves with a gutsy draw with 10 men against Ghana, and an inspiring win against Serbia. They finished with 4 points, the same as in 2006, but missed out on progressing due to a poor goal difference.

Again the Socceroos made the World Cup Finals in 2014 Brazil. Despite strong showings, the team did not win a match.

Australia continued it good run in qualifying for the World Cup, and are heading to Russia in 2018.
