Anthony Albanese promises Australians a public holiday if the Socceroos win the World Cup

Anthony Albanese promises Australians a public holiday if the Socceroos win the World Cup – but they’ve got a way to go yet

Anthony Albanese has all but promised a public holiday for Australians if the Socceroos in with the World Cup.

The prime minister was congratulating the Australian soccer team on its 1-0 victory over Denmark in the early hours of the morning.

Combined with its win over Tunisia on Saturday night, it was enough to put Australia through to the knockout round of 16.

Mr Albanese said he was ‘feeling a bit dusty’ after staying up late to watch the game, which started at 2am AEDT, while furiously texting fellow MPs.

‘I do note, the calls are out across Australia for a public holiday to be declared, and I say today, it was a bit late at 4am to call a public holiday,’ he said.

‘But if we win the World Cup, that may be a different story, so we will see how that goes. It might be a bit hard to resist.’

More to come.
