Socceroos captain takes up role 500 days before tournament kick-off.
Lucas Neill’s glittering career was crowned earlier this week after he was revealed as the Captain Ambassador for the 2015 Asian Cup.
With the tournament being held in Australia there was no better candidate for the position than Neill, with his appointment on Tuesday coming exactly 500 days before the big kick-off.
And in an interview with Fox Sports Australia the 35-year-old spoke of his pride at being recognised as the man for the role.
