Australia 3 Japan 1.

Australia’s first win ever, in its first World Cup finals appearance since 1974. All 3 goals scored within the last 8 minutes of the game. Needless to say it was bloody awesome. Woot.

    who would of guessed that Oz would win. There must of been a bigger majority putting their bets on Japan. I thought Aussies were only good at swimming hehehe

    hehe…yeh I know I know…but I already made a deal with my “Japs” friend…see, they thought that calling people who live in Australia “Aussie” was rude, so I said “well, as long as you dont mind me calling you Japs, I dont see why you can’t call Australian people Aussie….see..Australia = Aussie, Japanese = Japs, fair right”….LOL….so they said “yeah, of course, no problem, that’s better than Jap-sie”…LOL…so there, I did consult with them and got their permission….LOL…

    woohoo best comeback I’ve seen in a World Cup (yeah I know, I’m biased). could have so easily gone the other way, in which case we’d all be bitching about losing to a dodgey goal.

    its a great job from the Australia team, the japanese were tired after challenging for every ball with the bigger size Australians for 84 mins.

    the determination of Australia paid off!

    I still can’t bloody come to term that the socceroos scored 3 bloody goals in the last 5 mins, 2 of which is in Injury Time.

    Bloody Good show by the Aussie teams.
    Especially Tim Cahill, nice second goal.
