Been wondering what ball type will be used when the Socceroos take on Asia's best in the 2007 AFC Asian Cup? Wonder no more...

As the official ball supplier, Nike will be supplying the match balls for the tournament and we've got our hands on one. The ball is a version of the same ball used in the A-League, La Liga and the Premier League; but features an all-new design.

The Nike Mercurial Veloci AC is the first ball created specifically for a football competition in Asia.

Most strikingly is that each ball features the four host cities' and countries' names. Predominantly white, it also has a yellow and blue colour scheme as well as the official AFC Asian Cup 2007 logo.
