Olyroos miss out on Olympics marking troubling time for Aussie soccer

The Olyroos might be in search of a new nickname after missing out on qualifying for the Olympic Games in Rio in August overnight.

A 0-0 draw with Jordan in Qatar ended it for the Aussies. It’s a troubling time for soccer in Australia.

The A-League has struggled for most of the summer and most put it down to the absence of marquee players. The game desperately needs the injection of the likes of another Alessandro Del Piero, yet the A-League remains resolute this is the way to go. The game has lost some of its lustre which, for a sport still establishing itself, is a worrying sign.
