Ep. 4 - Borders: Australian-born grassroots movement to Save Hakeem | The birth of the National Soccer League

Australia has been shaped by a persistent - often irrational - obsession with borders.


As an accompaniment to the next chapter in the Football Belongs series: "Borders", which you can read at https://sport.optus.com.au/, John Didulica and David Davutovic are joined by broadcaster and Socceroos great Craig Foster for a deep and moving discussion on:

  • The early days of the fledgling National Soccer League - and what it represented then and now
  • Border issues we are facing today that have been consistent threads in our history
  • Australia's role in an incredible campaign to Save Hakeem - and why it was football that had the sensibility to undertake that campaign
