    That said, apart from being captain does Viduka really should be in the starting line-up?
    Haha yeah, Fozzie, legend. Also, Viduka should definitely be there. He played well in the 1st half, and was marked doggedly by Simunic. I'm also absolutely disgusted by Mr Lonely...

    Can not wait for Australia Italy, the dirtiest teams in the tournament facing off against each other. The midfield battle between Vince Grella and Gennaro Gattuso will be ugly.
    Red card's aplenty.

    Too bad Daniele De Rossi had to do an elbow to the head in the USA game, he could of at least saved it for this game

    And we can never rule out a Marco Materazzi challange on Harry Kewell, or Marco Bresciano or on somebody else...

    the German take on the game

    Australia has 2:2 after that against Croatia for the first time a WM round of the last sixteen in the bag.

    Which for one fight with four gates and three place references. There the Kaenguruh hops before luck!

    Typically Australia.

    They ackern up to the conclusion and are recompenced.

    Harry Kewell (FC Liverpool/79.) its "Sooceroos" meets in a collective joy-tumbles from four meters, falls.

    Which for a gate crime film.

    Croatia first shot a hit.

    Srna, which verdaddelte against Japan still another Elfer, sinks the 22-Meter-Freistoss to the 1:0 (3.).

    Greg of moorlands (38./Foulelfer) strikes back 1:1 for the Aussies -. Breakdown-gate-wait Kalac leaves a Kovac Kovac-Schues over the line holpern - 1:2 (57.).

    Australia now raus, Croatia further.

    But then Harry Kewell comes.

    Ice-coldly, like of Liverpool Prime Minister League professional to the 2:2 (79.) executed.

    In the nerve crime film fly still the Croats Simic (AC Mailand/84.) and Simunic (90. +3) as well as Kaenguruh Emerton (87.) with yellow-red down.

    2:2 - it is enough!

    Now Monday in the round of the last sixteen Italy is to believe to.
    how does Craig Moore become Greg of Moorlands?

    I'm waiting for my post world cup call up into the Australian team in place of Kalac......

    The end was an utter shambles, and Poll will almost certainly not be refereeing the final.

    Again though. FIFA have been pretty stupid with their choice of referees for certain games. Mexican ref - England vs Paraguay. Hispanic ref refereeing another Hispanic country. Spainish ref in the Ecuador game. English ref doing an Australia game

    I cheered when Kewell scored as well...

    Wouldn't have been fair if Croatia had gone through, Australia were dominant for most of the match...

    Poll was just as bad to the Croats as the Australians.

    Yeah Mexico and Paraguay have so many things in common, other than being as far away as Britain is to the Sudan. The people are exactly the same, the cultural is so similar, both countries speak the same language, Mexicans speak Spanish, the vast majority of Paraguayans speak Guaraní et cetera et cetera.

    Also I doubt the Ecuadorians fully understood the Spanish ref, considering people from Ecuador speak colloquial Spanish.

    btw Brazil started to string things together in the second half against Japan.

    Good to watch, and good to see Ronaldo get a couple of goals.

    While I'm not looking to have a whinge about the refereeing, that was clearly not the case. Australia had two of the most blatant penalties you will ever see ignored, including one that should also have been a red card as a deliberate handball prevented a clear shot at goal, and Simunic was left on the field after being given two yellows. Obviously both sides suffered poor decisions, as Kewell was also offside for his goal (though that wasn't Poll's fault), but Australia had the worst of it by a long way.

    For sure but I failed to the see a clear bias which Matteh's post was alluding to, presumably Poll speaks English, Australia people are sometimes known to speak English. Put two and two together and you get five.

    Yeah, I don't think it was biased, just crappy referreeing. In fact, in terms of general fairness in approach to the contest, I thought this game had the best refereeing of the three Australia have been involved in. There's been a clear influence that's come into the refereeing so far from the media image of Australia as a rough team, and I think the foul count of 26-9 or whatever it was in the Brazil game bears that out pretty well. In this game, the referee was pretty fair, he just made a lot of mistakes.
