    Oh heart break for Iran. Didn't deserve that. Terrific strike by Messi though.

    Harsh on Iran.

    He's a bit good though, this Messi bloke.

    Well, there you go. Messi has 6 points in group F.
    It's cold on the outside they say
    But the cold leaves you clear while the heat leaves a haze

    He's no Sturridge, but yeah he's ok.

    A sad moment too - the combined World Cup goal tallies of Messi, Ronaldo and Rooney now finally exceeds that of Tim Cahill.

    So Iran can still make it if they beat Bosnia in the third game? Really thought they had a red hot dig there.

    Ned Zelic providing annoying post match analysis for Australian viewers by putting excessive emphasis on every word he utters.

    I remember him refusing to play for Australia because he was too busy at Brugge or some such joint. ****.

    Was a decent player though.

    Well, that was harsh on us. Never thought I'd be saying this: but Iran should have had at least a draw. A stonewall penalty denied and we had several dangerous chances in the 2nd half. Heartbreaking to lose in such a way, what a goal by Messi. Goals aside, he's been pretty crap this WC - sounds strange, but anyone watching will understand what I mean.

    Still some way off Thomas Müller though.

    Jeez that was a terrible, terrible decision on that off side. Bloke was well behind the defender.

    Edit: Apparently a kiwi. Do they play soccer there? Honestly, the bloke's eyes must be painted on.

    Think the Bosnians are kidding themselves if they reckon the Nigerian goal should have been disallowed, but they have a decent grievance re the offside call earlier.

    One of the most entertaining games so far and there have been many. This one is a pleasant surprise though.
