HARRY KEWELL was delighted to be on commentary duty for Australia's famous World Cup win over Tunisia.

The Aussie's battled to a 1-0 victory over their group rivals to set-up an all-or-nothing clash with Denmark next week.

They sit second in Group D going into the final game - two points ahead of both The Danes in third and today's opponents at the bottom.

It was a first World Cup win since South Africa 2010 for Graham Arnold's men as they sparked wild celebrations down under.

Even Hibs star Martin Boyle, who was ruled out through injury last week, was spotted in the heart of the full-time scenes.

Celtic coach Kewell had his own successful career for The Socceroos and played four times in the tournament for his country.

He was working for Australian TV on media duties today where he played the role of co-commentator.

Kewell had fans thrilled too, as he struggled to hide his authentic, passionate reactions to the clash.

In particular they pointed out one moment where the Hoops coach groaned in agony at a missed chance in the second-half.

One fan wrote: "I love how much passion he has."

Another added: "I will not accept any criticism of Harry Kewell's commentary."

A third said: "Harry Kewell is normalising natural human reactions in the commentary box and it's about f****** time."

One wrote: "Who knew Harry Kewell riding every high and low in the commentary box would be absolutely perfect."

Kewell joined Celtic in June this year to become part of countryman Ange Postecoglou's backroom staff.

The ex-forward had played at the top level during his career with the likes of Leeds United and Liverpool.

Last month though he spoke of how impressed he was at life with Glasgow club, joking that he'd forgotten what football was like at the elite level.

He told Football Coaches Australia: "Being at Celtic now, it's a whole different ball game. You're working at the top level.

"I remember walking in on my first day and I bring my boots, my shorts, my training kit, everything.

"I walk into my locker and it was there - I had about ten piles of clothes. Brand new clothes, brand new boots. I was like 'oh wow, I forgot this is what it's like.'

"It was amazing - you forget."
