The now 41-year-old was born in Germany, raised on Australia’s Gold Coast and gained international recognition playing for New Zealand, who he represented 58 times scoring 24 goals. He is to resurrect his playing career, a career he thought was over after 18 years as a professional footballer. A career which saw him star in that 2010 World Cup game in South Africa which saw New Zealand draw 1-1 with Italy. A two-time A-League `golden boot` winner, Smeltz played for Borneo FC in Indonesia and the old-fashioned predatory No 9 also played for clubs in Australia, England, Turkey and Malaysia. He is second on the A-League’s record goalscorers list with 92 goals. He was the competition’s top scorer in 200/-09 for Wellington and 2009/10 for Gold Coast United. He also played for Perth Glory (28 goals in 58 appearance) and Sydney FC (12 goals in 43 games) in the A-League. He retired from professional football a few months ago with his last club being his home-town side Gold Coast United in Australia.
