Copy-Editing[edit]

I tried to flesh out the intro to make the squad listing below the info box and not overlap it anymore. I would be quite happy for people to fix up the info or change it in anyway to improve what i have started. Higdawg

2008 Olympic Qualifying[edit]

The scorers and scores are totally out of wack. 1-1 draws have 5+ players listed as scoring, somebody might want to fix this. 220.253.113.70 (talk) 14:47, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Proposal to rename to "Australia national under-23 association football team"[edit]

Australia ia a country with four different professional sports called football, plus a number of other codes called football in some places. Association football/soccer is not the biggest of the these, nor the oldest football code in the country. For this reason, we have the Australia national association football team. For clarity and consistency, this article also needs the word association added to the title. HiLo48 (talk) 07:38, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Two questionable lists[edit]

First, we have "Current squad". Now that we haven't made the Olympics, that doesn't have much meaning.

Secondly, we have "Recent call-ups", defined as "players...called up within the last 12 months." Is anyone really monitoring this list? Has the person called up on 27 February last year been deleted from the list? A very doubtful list. And since the team will presumably not be playing for a couple of years, the list should gradually dwindle to nothing. But when? HiLo48 (talk) 08:22, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

RE 2012 non-qualifying[edit]

A significant reason for Australia's poor performance was that for most of the qualifiers, overseas-based players were unavailable. The domestic a-league teams did not appreciate being stripped of their best youngsters mid season, so a cap of 3 players a team was introduced. The resulting poor show was rather predictable. Likewise, the away game against Uzbekistan was played on snow, which the Aussie players had no experience playing on. Does anyone want to dig up sources for all this, and include it in the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.45.95.236 (talk) 15:38, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Australia Olympic football teamAustralia national under-23 association football team – The team represents Australia in under-23 tournaments other than Summer Olympics and the name follows the other Australian age-restricted national teams (U20, U17). 2nyte (talk) 12:32, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Support as per nomination. I would however make sure that that the nickname "olyroos" is kept in the initial start of the article, and a clear explanation for the nickname. Macktheknifeau (talk) 14:22, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
