Legendary Socceroo John Aloisi will share his football story in “The Changeroom” at the FV Community in Business End of Season luncheon.
One of Australia’s most experienced and recognised footballers, legendary Socceroo John Aloisi has played, coached and covered the game for over 25 years. As the man who secured Australia’s place in the 2006 FIFA World Cup after slotting through the winning penalty shot against Uruguay, Aloisi will forever be celebrated as a sporting icon.
Aloisi is the only Australian to possess the impressive achievement of playing in the English, Italian and Spanish Leagues. There is no Australian footballer past or present with the football pedigree of Aloisi.
In a playing career spanning three decades, Aloisi quickly made his mark on Australian football, debuting for Adelaide City at the age of 15. At the age of just 16 he made the move to Belgian side Standard Liege, thus beginning a long and illustrious European career, playing at a number of big clubs Including Portsmouth and Coventry City in the English Premier League and Osasuna and Alaves in Spain’s La Liga.
Returning to Australia in 2007, Aloisi joined Central Coast Mariners and then moved to Sydney FC, helping the club to the 2009-10 A-League Premiers Plate-Championship double. A move to Melbourne Heart followed, with Aloisi giving the club great service on and off the pitch in his time there as a player, then Youth Team Coach, before taking the reins of the A-League side for two seasons. He later joined Melbourne Victory Youth as an Assistant Coach before joining Brisbane Roar as their longest service Head Coach.
