    Yeah. The pubs around here are all packed. Obviously it's not the most popular spectator sport in the country but people certainly watch it at the pub.

    We don't watch much football other than world cups and the odd A-League final really. Would have been a ton of people in establishments watching the game tonight though.

    Big events in the other codes often get decent turnouts in pubs and whatnot. Wouldn't say it's part of the culture though.

    But if Ghana beat Germany all we need to do is beat Serbia which is the scenario LHC commented on.

    EPL and some of the big European games get a decent pub following at certain establishments.

    I imagine any venue showing the game tonight in Melbourne would have been packed.

    If we beat Serbia 1-0 and Germany draws with Ghana (best possible case IMO), it's:

    Germany 4 GD +3
    Ghana 4 GD 0
    Serbia 4 GD -1
    Australia 4 GD -4

    Looks like we have to beat Serbia 2-0 or more and Germany draws with Ghana.

    If Ghana beats Germany and we beat Serbia, obviously we're through.

    Too many variables for mine.

    You're a soccer hater, and you go to cinemas to watch matches.

    Benchy's maths correct here. His scenario gives Ghana 6, Oz 4 & Jerry and Serbia 3 apiece.

    Suspect Osama Bin Laden will be coverting to Judaism before Ghana beat Germany tho.

    Admire your uncompromising anti-association football stance, but thought as a patriotic Aussie you'd still be rooting for the Socceroos?
