Adelaide set up Gamba rematch

Adelaide’s hard fought 2-1 victory over Waitakere in the Club World Cup opener in Tokyo last night came down to a 83rd minute winner from Travis Dodd.

The Kiwi’s took the lead after Eugene Galekovic spilled the ball in a collision which saw Waitakere take the lead through Paul Seaman, but Reds defender Dan Mullen levelled matters just five minutes later.

The game was heading for a draw until Adelaide’s captain Travis Dodd sent a glancing header inside the far post for the win.

Vidmar’s men now face a blockbuster rematch with Gamba Osaka with the winner to take on Manchester United.

Vidmar commits to 3 more years with Adelaide United

Adelaide United has re-signed coach Aurelio Vidmar and assistant Phil Stubbins for three more years.

Vidmar and Stubbins’ contracts were up for renewal at the end of the 2008/09 A-League season.

The 41-year old became head coach of Adelaide last year after serving as an assistant under John Kosmina and since then has not looked back, guiding the Reds to the final of the 2008 Asian Champions League.

“I’m extremely happy, it’s always great to have the confidence of the club and the owners,” he said.

“I’m extremely delighted to sign on for a further three years and continue the work that we set out two years ago.”

Reds chief executive Sam Ciccarello was delighted with the news.

“We believe Aurelio and Phil offer us the best combination of any A-League club in Australia.” Ciccarello said.

Up to a point

Public opinion is a fickle thing. When Adelaide United made it past cashed-up Kashima Antlers and Bunyodkor to secure a place at the Club World Cup in December, football forums were awash with messages of congratulation (or self-congratulation), hailing the growth made by the A-League, the battler spirit of Aurelio Vidmar’s boys, the supremacy of Australia in Asia, etc.
