Good Show Socceroos

Too bad for Ozzies that they had to lose out to lackluster Blue eyed Pretty boys who fake injuries and fall in the box just to get ref's attention.. Poor Ozzies, after putting up a fantastic display had to lose out on a Spot kick in the last minute of the game. It was a total heart break for them... then again materazzi's foul was not so bad that it deserved sending off. Both teams had so many chances, one italian was a good actor whereas none of Ozzies could manage to pull of a fake fall like he did to get a penalty kick. Well.. all said and done, at the end of the day if you dont score, when you get a chance you just have to wait for your luck to win it and luck may desert you at the very last moment just like it deserted the Socceroos today... Well now Italy even with their substandard display can easily beat Ukr or Swiss to get into Semis easily.. Germany vs Arg will be a classic replay of their 90' Finals when Lothar Mathaus, present coach Klinsmann and Co. beat maradona's argentina... Just cant wait to see that... and tommorrow is Brazil's game with Ghana.. Hopefully Brazil should breeze through to Quarters ...

@Daniel: Yes and I am eagerly waiting for the encounter..

@Anon: That would be just a wishful thinking.. Alas.. they lost to a team that knew how to score thrice and had one of the best goal keepers even though they have a awful defense.. But interestingly one of the defenders Lucio started the run for the 2nd goal which sealed the victory.. But ghana played well.. Good experience for them to play the champions...

Yooo hooo.. Viv la Brazil... and France is winning too mainly due to a Fake fall from Henry.. I love his game, but couldnt beleive he would fake to get a freekick which resulted in a goal.. But anyways Maestro Zidane's finishing touch will end Spain's hopes yet again.. How many times will Spain not live upto their reputation.. Brazil vs France.. Another replay of Finals.. Whats happening ppl? Is it just a coincidence or some bigger plan which we dont see.. :)
