An outstanding leader in every sense of the word during a 16-year professional career, which took him to the heights of the UEFA Champions League and the World Cup twice. Craig Moore’s courage was on display week-in-week but never more so then when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. He successfully returned as captain for the Brisbane Roar and represented the Socceroos at the 2010 World Cup.
WORLD CLASSHARRY KEWELL
Winner of the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and voted Australia’s Greatest Ever player, in every sense Harry Kewell was a ‘world class’ footballer. In a career that saw him excel on the world stage on countless occasions, at his best Harry, was one of the world’s finest players.
A co-founder of the PFA Kimon Taliadoros’s career saw him represent the Socceroos and firmly establish himself as one of the NSL’s finest forwards. Off the pitch Kimon has excelled in equal measure. After serving as the PFA’s inaugural Chief Executive, whilst still playing, he has since gone on to obtain a Masters of Business to add to his accounting qualifications.
Whenever Australia has needed him, Mark Schwarzer has been there. In a career that saw the keeper become the most capped Socceroo in history Mark has been instrumental in three consecutive World Cup Finals appearances. After announcing his retirement from the National Team in 2013, Mark was awarded the players’ highest honor - the PFA Alex Tobin OAM Medal.
“My first dream as a young players was to play at a World Cup for my country and second was to play in Italy. I am a very lucky person. I’ll make sure that I honor the shirt in every game that I play.” Vince Grella, 2005 after the Socceroos qualified for the 2006 World Cup.
