With three big matches in June, the Australian national soccer team is poised to play without four of its biggest players — who themselves are poised to welcome five babies. Lucas Neill, who captains the team known as the Socceroos, and his partner Lindsey Morris (pictured at left) are expecting twins, while striker Josh Kennedy and midfielders Jacob Burns and Mile Sterjovski are also expecting June arrivals. Socceroos coach Pim Verbeek called the situation "tricky" and said he'll pull players from his country's A-League to ensure that Australia has a full roster for each of the pivotal games.
