Arnold determined to leave Australia a lasting legacy
Sydney: Graham Arnold has given himself a new mission: not only will he look to guide Australia to AFC Asian Cup™ success and the Finals of another FIFA World Cup, the 59-year-old intends to leave a lasting legacy that establishes football as his nation’s leading sport.
Arnold last week extended his tenure at Socceroos’ helm for another three-and-a-half years after steering the team to the Round of 16 in Qatar last year, although he now also has his sights set on longer-term goals for the game.
Seoul: Korea Republic international striker Hwang Ui-jo has joined FC Seoul on loan from Nottingham Forest, the K League 1 club has announced.
The 30-year-old, who was a member of the Korean squad that reached the Round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, has returned to his homeland on a five-month loan deal after a disappointing spell in Greece with Olympiacos.
Damascus: Veteran Argentine coach Hector Cuper has been appointed head coach of Syria, the national football federation announced on Thursday.
"Argentina's Hector Cuper, new coach of Syria. The new coach of the Syrian national team and his assistant staff will arrive in Syria in the coming days," the Syrian Football Association posted on Facebook, without specifying the duration of his contract.
