    Something to give cheer to Australian fans.

    If Ghana beat the USA in the final round of matches, Australia swing a draw or a win against Croatia, and Italy draw with the Czech Republic, Australia will meet Ghana in the second round, while Brazil meet Italy. Should Australia progress past Ghana, they'll play the winner of G1 vs H2, which given France's poor start could concievably be Korea vs the likes of Ukraine or Tunisia. Ghana are obviously a good side, but you couldn't really hope for an easier path to the semis than that, should Ghana top Group E.

    Certainly looks better than facing Italy followed by France, anyway.

    Never thought I'd live to see it but Aus deserved at least a draw tonight.

    If it were not for a non match-fit Kewell, Aus would've been leading 2 -1 early in the 2nd half and Brazil, IMO, were history.

    A European team wins this WC - not on merit but that's how the moons are aligned.

    Italy are crap but FIFA needs an excuse to get the focus of the Serie A disgrace.

    Eng are just as bad but are the 2006 version of 2002 Gemany.

    Spain or Portugal may dive their way to victory unless they choke first.

    I assume you mean non-match fit in not being able to play from the start, rather than not fit enough to make an impact, because he wasn't even on early in the second half. That would be a pretty big assumption to make.

    Kewell has hardly played of late (due to a groin injury)

    Aus, if you've noticed, has few world class players. If Kewell was even hal fit, he'd play more minutes.

    So, I assume youre saying Ital and Eng arent crap and Spain and Portugal dont choke>

    Pedant's point: he's implying it, you're inferring it from his implication.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    But to say they'd definitely score 2 goals against Brazil if he was fully fit is a bit hopeful.


    And I was saying Italy and England are decent teams (maybe not awesome) who haven't played to their potential and to dismiss Spain and Portugal purely as divers/chokers is pretty stupid.

    He's a very good player who's played well for Liverpool this season.
