Bloody amazing. A watershed day in Australian sport. We have one foot in the second round of the World Cup! I was amazed that the 3rd goal was treated by all analysts as a cherry on top of the cake. It is very likely we will need goal difference to go through to the next round, so this spare goal in extra time could be the most important one ever scored for Australia.
Someone else had this idea and I am going to nick it because I thought it was quite touching - here are all the old socceroos I can think of. Thank you to all of them for flying the flag in the tough times.

The blog has been off the air partly due to the World Cup and busy times at work. I'm afraid it will get worse before it gets better.
