Kewell delighted to be chosen for World Cup campaign

Harry Kewell was chuffed to have been included in Australia's World Cup bid promo movie.

The Galatasaray star appeared in the movie which Australia will use to try and obtain the hosting rights to the 2018 or 2022 events and he was happy to help such a cause.

"It was fantastic. I shot it straight away after getting off the plane when we played Uzbekistan [on April 1]," he said of the FFA bid movie.

"They asked me and I thought it'd be an absolute privilege. I came straight from the plane, checked into the hotel and then went straight to the stadium to film it.

"I was really happy with it. A lot of people have seen it and they've all turned around and said it's a great promo.

"Hopefully, a lot of people can see Australia and appreciate Australia with this promo and hopefully that can get us over the line when the decision is made."
