World Class

We made the final 16!! Finally we have proof that Australia has a world class football team! Of course we knew that all along. I was quite confident of a win against Croatia, but a draw was enough. There were quite a few heart-in-mouth moments but our guys never gave up and performed brilliantly!

I can't not comment on the quality of the match officials - which was abysmal! I mean Simunic got three yellow cards. WTF? There were numerous tackles (Simunic on Viduka in the penalty area) and hand balls that went unpenalised. Very, VERY poor form from the FIFA officials.
