Good luck, Socceroos

It's 32 years since our one and only appearance at the World Cup. 32 years ago I was a five-year-old cowering behind the sofa while Dr Who played out on our black and white telly. Tonight I'll be chewing my nails just as hard, but this time I'll be in front of the sofa.
So, lay on the munchies and the caffeine drip and fingers crossed for a good result!

Update:

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!

Too bad they lost against Italy. Those azzuros didn't play that well, and the penalty shot was really, really begged for. I think the referee should not have given in.

I agree. Australia was hard done by in all the games they played but did really well to make it as far as they did. Bring on South Africa 2010!

Well, if Italy defets Ukraina (which is the most possible result), we'll meet the azzurri in the semi, and then you'll get your revenge.

At least I hope so. ;)

Well, there goes that plan...

Why, that plan can still work.

I'm German, not English. ;)
