The 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship was scheduled to take place in Yugoslavia. However, due to civil unrest, the tournament was again hosted by Australia. What a show it was! The greatest emerging football talent was on display in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney for almost 500,000 fans of many nations to enjoy.
Australia beat Uruguay in extra-time to get past the quarter-finals and book a date with eventual tournament winners, Brazil. The biggest result of the tournament came in Group C, when the United States thumped Turkey 6-0. Talented American, Chris Faklaris, scored a hat-trick. Faklaris was a name used on repeat by Greek-Australian commentator, Andrew Paschalidis, and was exclaimed in passing to describe his commentary skills for years to come.
This design is a tribute to one of the most entertaining tournaments ever hosted on Australian soil and to the young man whom made his country proud with three of the best in one match.
