In 1985, Playboy Australia featured Vanessa Bruce as the October edition's cover model. Wearing nothing but a Socceroos jersey and socks, Bruce was every bit the eighties blonde. Inside, a feature titled Socceroos: World Cup Or Bust by sports writer Neil Jameson, outlined Frank Arok's mission to see the Socceroos qualify for the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.


History has not been kind to Australian soccer fans - the Socceroos did not qualify. However, this design marks a rarity for the sport, when soccer met the cover of the world's most popular gentleman's magazine.
