    Golden boy Kewell leaves Aussies seeking new football stars

    The end of Harry Kewell's injury-blighted career has given another reminder of the contrast between Australia's "golden generation" and the more modest current squad as they head towards the World Cup. The gifted Kewell, 35, made an emotional farewell on Saturday in front of 10,000 fans at Melbourne Heart's final game of the season, ending a career which also took him to Leeds, Liverpool and Turkish side Galatasaray. As well as a relatively low-key finish for the man acclaimed as Australia's …
