Guus Hiddink Appointed Socceroos' Coach

PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink has been appointed coach of the Australian national team in a bid to lead them to the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

The Dutch coach, 58, lead Dutch champions PSV to the semi-finals of last season's Champions League and was in charge of the South Korean national team which reached the semi-finals of the 2002 World Cup.

He replaces Frank Farina, who stepped down after Australia lost all three of its matches at the recent Confederations Cup.
