Go Socceroos!

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 14 December 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Socceroos fans at Canberra Stadium for a football friendly vs Malaysia.

Meet my wife Maureen - on the left of frame. Joining in the fun here are our friends Wilhelmina (with her camera) and Graham.

We won this match 5 nil. Go the Socceroos!

This will be a week to enjoy sport. I head next to an African football challenge!
