Rooney, Curran, Schaefer, Mackay, Richards, Warren, Utjesenovic, Alston, Buljevic, Reilly and Wilson would take the field for Australia for the first time in a FIFA World Cup after beating South Korea in a playoff. It was 14 June 1974 in Hamburg, West Germany, where a dream became reality.


The "Socceroos" had made it! They were part-time players who had given up jobs as milkmen, car salesmen and miners to join fifteen of the world's greatest football teams. Who were these kangaroos; these amateurs? They were the Boys of '74.


Be sure to tell the story.
