'If It's Football, It's Vital'

After THAT Saga Coyne May Miss World Cup


Chris Coyne, who sensationally had his contract terminated by Colchester United last summer, may now not fulfil his dream of making the World Cup finals with Australia.

Ex-U`s-defender Coyne, who endured an uncertain spell under former boss Paul Lambert as his stoke rose with the national team and following a surprise first cap in June 2008. He has since, according to Perth Now, has been displayed by Leeds` Patrick Kisnorbo in the pecking order.

It is thought the Perth Glory back will discover his World Cup fate well before the finals, since Glory may have to lease the players to Europe if they are indeed to travel in that squad`s final 23. This is because, to stay fit, Coyne would need regular football after the A-League season ends, still three months shy of the finals in Africa.

Yet, although Coyne cited international ambitions as part of the reason for leaving Colchester, he has ironically failed to appear for the Oz team since.

Glory owner, Tony Sage, commenting on the dual plight of Coyne and another star player in his squad, Jacob Burns, said: "If you're not going to pick them, it would be good for the players themselves to know and secondly for me to know. We don't want to go through the whole process of loaning them out if you're not going to even entertain them being in your squad."
