#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Carney is so so frustrating. Wasn't within buckleys of his man for the goal. Australia's Glen Johnson.
Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.
Too many bones, not enough CASH!!
People might talk about how we had more chances, but Japan deserved to win. Quality chances over quantity.
Carney's effort is probably the worst piece of defending I have ever, ever seen. It is absolutely baffling that he would run to the line instead of marking his man. Absolute garbage, and the reason we didn't go to penalties.
No idea why Emerton and Kilkenny were brought on, showed nothing. Both Carney and Emerton had shockers, and they damn well better not start for the Socceroos next game.
Overall, promising signs, but really, could've been the trophy.

Japan continues to rule the Asian Championships -- we've lost just two matches in the last six tournaments. Our problem is that the dominance in Asia isn't translating into results at the WC, and I think that in part is because we get complacent about being the big fish in the small pond.
I thought Australia were disappointing tonight. You guys should have been able to use your height advantage, but Nagatomo and Uchida, our left and right defenders who are both really small, were able to control the flanks, and you never got a chance to exploit your strengths.
Disappointing match overall, I nearly fell asleep.
Loved the game, personally.
I thought Japan did well at this WC. Lost out to Paraguay only on penalties, after getting out of their group comfortably.
Our weaknesses are an inability to convert scoring chances and the height deficit in our defense line (also, a failure to understand the offside trap). The teams that take control of us are teams that manage to make the most of their height advantage -- you did it in 2006, so you should know.
I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
Forever, more than just surviving.
THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND
