The Football Federation of Australia commissioned an upbeat advert as part of their bid for the 2018 World Cup to be held here in Australia. It certainly demonstrates the flair and festivity of football. Do you think Australia can host the World Game? Post your comment.

Over the next three weeks starting as of tonight, Not the Footy Show will be bringing you an Olympic Feature on the seven sports vying for inclusion in the 2012 Games. Tune in tonight to catch the first part of this feature and vote for the sport you think should be included.

Ashley Morrison is in Johannesburg for the Confederations Cup. We will cross to him in the first hour to see how things are shaping up in South Africa.

Can you remember where you were on this day in 1999 when South Africa played Australia in that famous Cricket World Cup semi final? Damian Fleming can, as he bowled the last over to Lance Klusener. He joins us tonight.

WAIS only recently introduced diving to its programmes. Tonight we catch up with coach Jack Taylor to hear how the programme is bedding down.

The West Coast Fever played against the Thunderbirds on Sunday and lost 58-39. We speak to Andrea Gilmore about how they hope to get their bounce back for their next match against the Swifts.
