Wigan Athletic’s Australian midfielder Josip Skoko, who spent the latter half of the season on loan to Stoke City, scored in Australia’s 1-0 defeat of European Champions Greece.
Skoko, who may yet be the Latics only representative in the World Cup, scored in the 16th minute of the game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in front of a record 95,103 crowd.
Australia have qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1974 and Skoko has been an integral part of the team.. They play their opening Group F match on the 12th of June in Kaiserslautern against Japan followed by matches against World Champions Brazil and Croatia.
