He comes up with this gem of a quote
“The referees should have cracked down on all the diving and rolling around. It’s a man’s game not always played by men.”
“There were guys who looked like they were dying, and then suddenly they’d jump back up again.”
“That’s not the way we play. If we get hit we get back up and play the game.”
Please I saw at least two instances of Australian players (including Mr Kewell himself) diving in order to win a free kick/penalty.
I've never really understood this "we don't do it, but others do" attitude....pretty much every team indulges in diving.
Why doesn't Grella have the guts to admit that Japan, even taking out the red card scenraio (which btw I also thought was harsh) looked a far more creative and enterprising side ? Even Iraq and Oman looked technically better than the Socceroos.
