Neill urges fans to get behind Socceroos

Australia captain Lucas Neill has urged fans in South Africa to get behind the Socceroos and make some noise when they take on Serbia in Nelspruit tomorrow morning (4:30am AEST). Neill and his men need a win and hope the Ghana v Germany result falls their way if they are to qualify for the Round of 16 and the defender believes it is important to receive as much support as possible from the travelling Aussies.

"In Durban we didn't give them anything to cheer about but they were huge for us (against Ghana in Rustenburg)," he said.

"The national anthem (before the Ghana game) was unbelievable and I was choking as an Australian (to hear the Aussie crowd signing) how could you be any prouder?

"There was a sea of Australian gold in the crowd and we were pleased to be able to put on a much better show for them (compared to the Germany game in Durban)."
