That was a real thriller!!! All TV channels seemed to show Brasil against Japan but the Dutch TV showed Australia's match, I guess because of Hiddink.
The Aussies showed a lot of heart and it was necessary coz they had two people against them:
1) the referee
2) their own goalkeeper

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

What was that goalkeeper for Aussies, that second goal I think most people could have saved that shot it wasnt hit hard, The Aussie commentators were fithly with his skills, didn't matter though Harry saved the day

My team Wolves once bought this Goalkeeper Kalac but us and Leicester had a dispute over who signed him properly, luckily he went to Leicester

Unbelievable. They play all heart, and that's the most you could hope for in a team...That and a decent goalkeeper

Harry Kewell's dream comes true! He says that he always wanted to goal in World Cup since he was a little boy!

Did you guys know that he was a little boy and he was trained on the same park where my tennis lessons?

Well Done Aussies!!!

Man, that was one game to remember, because of the Australian goalkeeper's "childish" error , the "handball" that never was , and Graham Poll's "10 minutes of madness":-

1) Three red cards... and how did he FORGOT to send off the Croatian player after TWO YELLOW CARDS is mindboggling... he did show the red later, but after a THIRD YELLOW. And they call him the best referee from England...
2) The throw-in during the stoppage time... first to Croatia, then there were 2 balls on the field, and then Graham decides to "give" the throw in to Australia

Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)
