Socceroos captain Lucas Neill spent some time recently interviewing Harry Kewell. Harry talks about the highlight of his career and also how he thinks the Socceroos will fare in South Africa in June.

Harry to train with squad tomorrow

Tuesday, 20th April, 2010
Reports from Turkey say Harry is likely to resume training with the squad tomorrow. Just this weekend Harry's Galatasaray and Australian teammate Lucas Neill said "He's running around the pitch as we're training. We're really looking forward to getting him back in action so we can play in the same team at club level together." Such comments from Neill and the photo on the right, taken last week squash the absurd rumours going around last week that Harry was not going to be fit enough to play in the World Cup.

Galatasaray meanwhile sit on third place in the Turkcell Superlig. They have a chance to improve their standing when they play first placed Bursaspor this coming weekend but will need to win all their 4 remaining matches if they want to finish second let along first.

Harry set for ANZAC Day return

Sunday, 11th April, 2010
A pinched nerve is the reason for Harry's delayed return from injury however he now hopes to resume full training within a week with Galatasaray's manager hoping he'll be able to make the clash against league leaders Bursaspor on the 25th of April. This news contradicts today's report from the Sydney Morning Herald that Harry "won't make the world cup". Harry has now returned to individual strength training with his personal physio and former Wallabies physio David Bick and Galatasaray doctors are likely to let Harry return to training with the rest of the squad next week. Despite missing a few months of matches Harry still remains 5th in the league in scoring with 9 goals in 16 matches. Galatasaray face 16th placed Diyabakirspor this evening and a victory would see the Lions move up to third place.

Galatasaray are nothing without Kewell

Tuesday, 6th April 2010
Harry's absence is being sorely felt by Galatasaray as they continue to drift away from 1st place in the Turkish Super Lig. Last night they acheived a 1-1 draw at Sivasspor putting Galatasaray 7 points behind league leaders Bursaspor. In all the Turkish Super Lig games Harry has played this season, Galatasaray have won 13 out of the 16 matches whilst they have only managed to win 4 out of 10 matches since his injury. On top of that, Galatasaray won 8 out of the 9 Europa League matches Harry featured in and went 0 for 2 without him.

It is still unknown when exactly Harry will make his much needed return and Australia's manager Pim Verbeek admitted last week that he is "a little bit worried about Kewell". However, Australia's team doctor and Liverpool FC's future doctor Peter Bruckner said he was happy with Harry's progress. He also said Harry was the hardest working athlete he has ever worked with saying "I don't think I've ever met an athlete who puts in as much time and work into maintenance stuff" and that "the Australian public don't realise the amount of time and work he does trying to keep his body right".
