Fair play though, obviously it's a game that will always be remembered over there
Yeah, no way it was the best comeback in world cup history or anything, but if you consider the stage, match circumstances, heat and the fact that it was three goals after the 84th minute, it was pretty impressive. From a pool of four world cups that I've seen, it's one of the best, even without the Australian factor.
