SYDNEY, July 3 AAP - The achievements of the Socceroos in the 2006 World Cup are being celebrated with the special edition release of a stamp sheet.

Players Mark Viduka, Tim Cahill, Mark Schwarzer, Harry Kewell, John Aloisi, Craig Moore, Marco Bresciano and Brett Emerton, along with coach Guus Hiddink, all feature in the souvenir stamp sheet.

The nine green and gold 50 cent stamps from the Soccer in Australia stamp issue are available at Australia Post outlets from today.

``The Socceroos have made Australia proud through their efforts at the World Cup,'' Australia Post Philatelic Group Manager Noel Leahy said.

``This is a great way for Socceroos fans to remember their own journey through this momentous sporting event and to demonstrate to the rest of the world that we're proud of our team, by mailing it to friends and family overseas.''

Australia made it through to the second round of the World Cup in Germany, only to be knocked out by Italy in the final moments of the match.
