'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Eighty? (Well Almost)

The combined age of the goalkeepers on show at Craven Cottage this afternoon, is almost eighty!

Keeping goal for Tottenham will be forty year-old Brad Freidel whilst Mark Schwarzer, a mere spring chicken at thirty-nine, will be between the posts for Fulham.

But our Aussie keeper has nothing but respect for those who manage to prolong their careers and still provide a more than decent service between the sticks, remarking ahead of the clash,

"I`m not quite 40 yet, so I take offence to anyone putting me in the same bracket as Brad!"

"But he has been a fantastic goalkeeper and to continue at his age - as I like to say - is fantastic."

"When I look at people like him and also Edwin van der Sar last season, it gives me inspiration to continue playing. These days, clubs have a great sports science and medical department and I exploit them as much as possible."

"I have also done a little e bit of yoga but also a lot of Pilates and gym work"

"I`ve been doing the Pilates for about five years now and I feel it has helped massively. I feel really good and fit."

"Mobility is important and so far that is fine too. I hope I will know when the time comes to stop - and I hope it is a while off yet. One of my aims is to play in the 2014 World Cup."


And we see no reason why that dream cannot be achieved.
