Socceroos legend Mark Viduka has broken his longstanding media blackout to accuse former Australian teammates of undermining his captaincy and tearing the team apart.

In a revealing exclusive interview with ESPN, Viduka opened up on the Socceroos’ disastrous 2007 Asian Cup campaign – just one year after the incredible highs of the 2006 World Cup.

Having entered the tournament as favourites Australia was dumped out of their first-ever AFC continental tournament at the quarterfinals despite fielding a similar squad to Germany ‘06.

Now Viduka claims selfish teammates destroyed the side’s sense of unity – and cost Socceroos coach Graham Arnold his job.
