Neil Montagnana-Wallace was Marketing and Events Manager at the Football Federation of Victoria, and wrote Our Socceroos in 2004, which was how he struck up a friendship with Mark Schwarzer. Currently, when not writing, Neil is the Marketing and Strategy Director of Woof Creative Solutions. He also plays in Victoria's State Leagues and is a Senior Licence coach. Mark Schwarzer (OAM) has established himself as not only Australia's premium goalkeeper, but one of the world's best, playing in the English Premier League. Mark's heroics in the penalty shootout that got Australia to the 2006 World Cup will forever be remembered as a highlight in Australian sport.
