Harry Kewell (b. 1978), Australia's greatest ever soccer export, attended Sydney's Westfields Sports High School and the NSW Soccer Academy before trialling with English club Leeds United in 1995, at the age of 16. He made his first-team debut for Leeds the following year, and remained with the club until 2003, when he signed for Liverpool, the club he had supported as a boy. In 2005 he was part of the Liverpool team that won the European Cup, club football's most prestigious trophy. Along with Craig Johnston - who also played for Liverpool - Kewell is the only Australian ever to have won the trophy. Kewell has represented Australia at senior level 19 times - most recently in the Socceroos' celebrated World Cup playoff against Uruguay, when Australia qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time since 1974.
