Graham Arnold's problems with the Olyroos are of his own making

A hat-trick from David Williams dented the Newcastle Jets' A-League finals hopes as Wellington Phoenix run out 4-1 winners.

"When I watched the Socceroos in Russia, we were thin on depth," Graham Arnold said on Thursday. "The only place the depth can come from is underneath."

At the tournament in Thailand next January, Australia will fight for one of three available places for Asia, alongside hosts Japan, at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The Barcelona forward was back at the Maracana stadium in Rio for a charity game organised by former Brazil great Zico. Looking at the goalmouth where he scored the Olympic...

Bob Bradley hopes Donald Trump's 'divisive' comments don't hurt U.S.

Former United States manager Bob Bradley called President-elect Donald Trump's campaign tactics "divisive and ugly'' and said he hopes they don't negatively impact America's ambition to stage the World Cup or the Olympics.

The U.S. is in the running to host the 2024 Olympics in Los Angeles, while the United States Soccer Federation has expressed interest in bidding to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, either alone or with neighbors Mexico.

But Bradley said a negative international perception of the...
