More and more Ozzies are playing soccer overseas

Tim Cahill, Mark Schwarzer head the list of Australians playing professional football overseas, including seven plying their trade in the Barclays Premier League and seven in the Championship.

I would like to see a game played by two Australian teams. One team of players that play abroad and a team of Aussies that play in Australia.

The quality would be with the overseas players, but I wonder who would be more hungry?
