Verbeek to move on
Australia's coach Pim Verbeek announced this week that he was ending his tenure with the Socceroos at the World Cup.
So it means that the Socceroos will have somebody else in the dugout come the Asian Cup in January 2011.
Verbeek guided Australia's qualification to World Cup and also the 2011 Asian Cup and the World Cup will be his first and last tournament with the Socceroos.
Also on the coaching front, Ivory Coast are still to find a new coach to replace Vahid Halilhodzic who was sacked after the Africa Nations Cup.
Whoever takes over the Elephants will have very little time to get ready for the tournament.
