Croatia are already through, So I'm happy. But i still hope Australia get through, But i don't think it'll happen - Aus to win 1-0 and lose in extra time/penalties.

Most goals in international football tend to be a bit scrappy, I do hope Australia get drawn with England if they get through this tie somehow.

Australia absolutely dominating early in the second half. Looks like only one team can score right now, but we need to put it on the scoreboard, because things can change quickly.

1049: Harry Kewell is booked for diving. It comes shortly after Scott Chipperfield dallies over the ball when a first-time shot was needed.

Nothing changes.

Somebody kick that filthy cheating scum ex-Leeds diving git in the nads.

This has really become a 4 yearly heart break time for Australia. Hold your breath the Aussies and dont raise your hopes too high.

I hope the Aussies do qualify though.

I've only been watching it intermittently, but I just heard there has been 44 penalties given... what's that all about? :wacko:

Uruguay look on their feet here. Guus should bring on Archie, his pace running at that defence without Montero in it.

Gawd, so close now......

Shocking decision at the end there about the corner.

It really did look like we were unlucky not to score a goal there in the second half

Eh?

Are you listening to an American commentary or something?

"And it's Australia on the You Are Gay twentythree yard line, Viduka back to the quarterback Vidmar, he goes long to the wide receiver Kewell, completely in the clear, TOUCHDOWN Australia. Kewell took off and just flew through..... wait, penalty on the play. Kewell for unnecessary roughing of the ground."

I'm stupid and new to actually watching soccer. If a goal is scored now, is extra time over? Or does it keep going for the whole 30 minutes?

Well at least CW made it to the third page before someone used the 'you are gay' line.

Typical of Derbyshire folk to lower the standard.

Depends on what rule book you use. :D

I think FIFA has abolished the sudden death rule, though, because UEFA certainly have. So it keeps going for the whole 30 minutes.

Edit: Yup. FIFA World Cup regulations, article 17, clause 2: If, in accordance with the provisions of these Regulations, extra time shall be played as the result of a draw at the end of normal playing time, it shall always consist of two periods of 15 minutes each, with an interval of five minutes at the end of normal playing time, but not between the two periods of extra time.
