Skoko Scores

Skoko Scores

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.

He never really got going in the first team because there were too many good players ahead of him. He did have some good games in the cup matches that he played in though, notably against Newcastle United.

It was an excellent goal as well, he played for about 60 minutes of the game and looked dangerous everytime he touched the ball. BTW I am in Aust.

I am very surprised that this talented midielder is not in Wigan's 1st 11. He has been a consistant performer at international level. He and Tim Cahill (Everton) are fighting for a place in Australia's side for the World Cup and going on his performance against Greece, must have a big chance. With Brett Emerton, Lucas Neill, Harry Kewell, Mark Vuduka, Mark Schwartzer and Craig Moore, the Aussies will make there presence felt.

robjune14, yes I did but don't agree totally, Kewell if he pays will be at 60%, Viduka was ineffective last night, the one guy was Breshiano (not sure how you spell it) and you didn't mention him. Wigan signing?

I wonder if stoke will want him back next year, or even if wigan are prepared to let him go again.

The action(?) from yesterday's game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest which ended goalless:

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
