Evening guys,
the performance of both teams was good, but the referrying stunk, putrid.
The italian player tripped over the aussi who was laying/fell to the ground & the referry then gives out a free goal kick, cause the guy who tripped, hurt himself, poor lad, it really hurt it did!
"Mummy help!!!"
"Oh mummy, he hurt me, he did, he really did hurt me! Ahhhnnnnnggggg!!!!
"OK son you can kick a goal, cause you haven't kicked any goals all night & I've got to keep my boy big & strong, otherwise he'll cry."

the madCrow is really mad & sad,

but he's very proud of the Socceroos! Good on ya guys, you are winners in my eyes!

Too many wasted chances. They did exceptionally well to get that far.

You got the perspective right Al, they missed heaps, could not see the goal often enough.
Cheers,

It looked like we would get on top once the Italians lost their guy but we just couldn't convert to points.

It is always a pity when a match comes down to a refereeing decision.

The Aussies did great getting to where they did and I think we might see a bit of a lift in the profile of soccer here after that effort.

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHH

Now that's off my chest I may be able to type some sense.
I felt the Aussies had no-one hungry to score. Good control of possesion but stuff all enthusiasm to rock the back of the net.
I don't think the ref can be blamed for our inadequecies to capitalise with the amount of possesion we had. STILL VERY PROUD to be an Aussie and proud of our soccer team as we all should be.
Let's see the reaction for their homecoming... will the streets be a wash with ticket tape parades again??

Bleary eyed, socceroo supporter.

Just proves that it is such a silly game......no other "real" football codes would let a decision like that stand! ;-)

Next week, it will be all but forgotten.....we will all go back to our respective sports we enjoy watching.

(isn't it obvious) avid soccer fan, Andrew :-)

You are so right Andrew. This sort of incident (and all the accompanying 'acting') is the reason Soccer (sorry 'Football') will never really take off here. Aussies are wont fall for it!

Don't bet on it.

You are watching the beginning of the end of AFL - it won't be a sudden death it'll be a slow drawn out one but a game centred on the suburban clubs of one city (with no worthwhile international content) just isn't in the running any longer against an international sport like football given modern communications and air travel. Ten years is my guess.

We have had to fight for every step, we have had bad decisions thrust upon us everywhere, and rarely did we see the ref take our side. Obviously the reff in this match was a freakin idiot and I just dont understand why they cant watch the replay to see that the decision was clearly based on a freakin italian who should be acting in low quality community italian tv rarther than playing soccer. The player should have recieved a yellow card for faking an injury. At worst the italian should have recieved a free kick, but the reff decided to hand the game over and make the italians the winners. The other stupid decision was when the italian handballed and the game continued without any notice. That was clear on the screen and was illegal. We should have recieved a penalty kick and did not. In this case the game should have ended 1:1 or 1:0 to us. I feel like the reff made a decision of who he would like to win. After all we have gone through to get here, and to have us kicked out in this way is against all principle. I cant see how these reffs are paid for choosing the winners. Fifa should not pay them but italy should definatly share their winnings with that reff, he was their star player, man of the match and deserves an italian parade and key of the city.

Proud of the Roos but it's hard to get excited about a game that can be decided like that, no justice. AFL is safe as all the good players in Australia end up OS where the money is. Fantastic effort, wouldn't celebrate if I were the Italians, they aren't anywhere near good enough to win this.

No matter which sport you follow there are good decisions and bad decisions made each week in every game in every code. We had a fantastic run. We won our way to the World Cup and we got through to the last 16. The end was tragic for us but had it been the same decision made our way, then we'd be cheering now. That's just the way it goes.

I'm a Victorian, love my footy (AFL) but that doesn't mean there isn't room for other codes. Rugby, Soccer, Hockey...you name it...if Australia plays it, then I'll be cheering. That's not climbing on the bandwagon that's just being an Aussie.

This World Cup has been fantastic. Still is fantastic. Australia is fantastic in the way it supported the team. This has been a wonderful example of how we really get behind our sports people and cheer them on no matter what the sport is. We're winners.
