Harry Kewell's commentary on SBS has left viewers divided

Harry Kewell made his debut in the commentary box for Australia's opening World Cup match against France and it has left fans divided.

The Leeds and Liverpool legend went straight into management after hanging up the boots a few years back, but he has now decided to give media work a crack.

Aussie hero Kewell was parachuted in by broadcasters SBS to be on the mic for his nation's colossal clash against the World Cup holders.

But it seems his efforts have left some viewers split with a bunch of fans loving it while others clearly weren't too fond.

A small minority were even calling for SBS to remove him from the broadcast.





But not everyone was critical of Kewell's running commentary.

Some fans were quick to flock to social media to heap praise on the Australian icon, particularly acknowledging his scathing analysis of Graham Arnold's second half tactics.









Despite bagging the opening goal of the game and dominating possession for the first 15 minutes, the Socceroos eventually became overwhelmed with the French.

With the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Oliver Giroud breathing down their necks, the players began turning over possession cheaply which subsequently lead to goals – four of them, to be exact.

Giroud went on to write his name into the French history books, equally Thierry Henry's all-time scorer's record with 51 goals.

As for Australia, they now face two more tough tests in the form of Tunisia and Denmark.
