Another week, another sporting even in the world’s sporting capital as a handful of boys attended the Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix and we give you some of the highlights of Tim Cahill’s 26,227 kilometre journey with the Socceroos during busy week in our City.
Get your motors running
Melbourne keeps delivering the goods for sporting events and this week the Australia Formula 1 Grand Prix was in town at Albert Park.
Luke Brattan was pit-side with club partner SAP as he got a first-hand look at the paddock as well as meeting double World Champion and current driver Fernando Alonso before the Spaniard would head behind the driver’s seat for the big race.
It wasn’t only Brattan who saw the chequered flag but Danes Thomas Sorensen and Michael Jakobsen were also there to support compatriot Kevin Magnussen.
Cahill’s 26,000 kilometre journey
From the snow-capped mountains of the Middle East to the familiar surrounds of the Sydney Football Stadium, Tim Cahill’s whirlwind week with the Socceroos has seen him take in the sights from two very different places in the world.
First up it was a trip to Tehran, Iran for Cahill and his side to take on Iraq and the views from their hotel room to their training ground.
It was then a trip back to his home town of Sydney where the Socceroos forward got up close with a new friend at Tooronga Zoo before playing a role in the Socceroos win over UAE.
Proud of our team tonight. It’s about staying strong together and believing in the process. Play with passion and pride and we will be fine. No qualifying campaign is easy, this is my fourth and I can see progression on and off the park as a team and staff. Always a privilege to wear the jersey and so happy to still be a part of something special. ???⚽️??? #FEARLESS #LEGACY
