Because normally by now they've suffered an embarrassing loss.

2018 World Cup

They weren't that convincing against Tunisia. And against Panama, there were 2 penalties and an arguable offside.

That said, this teams lacks the ego of previous sides - they are far more likeable and grounded. Belgium should be ok against them, but you never know.

What a cracking Group B finale this morning - shattered for Iran and Morocco, they both showed plenty in all matches. Portugal progress, unpleasantly, with Pepe and Cronaldo typically being pests. Probably one of my least liked national sides. Hopefully Russia upsets them, but it's not the most appealing R16 match up.

Australia-Peru tonight.. I feel we certainly have the capacity to win and win well.. doesn't mean we will. Relying on results in the France vs. Denmark match is a horrid situation to be in. Can we please keep Van Marwijk, at least for the Asian Cup? I really can't be arsed with Arnold as national coach

It's funny, because a country ranked 25th in the world with 13x the population of ours and god knows how much more funding, got eliminated before the tournament started by a team ranked 91st in the world. Whereas Australia, ranked in the 40s, who changed coaches just a month or so out from the tournament, took it right up to two teams ranked in the top 15.

So I got my bottom two wisdom teeth taken out today. It feels good to look ahead to tomorrow’s matches and know that watching them is exactly what medical science would want me to do. No being productive, nothing but watching futbol for healing purposes. Especially excited for the conclusion of Group F.

Exactly. We made it, we competed, we exited, just as another 15 teams will. I'd rather fail in the group stage of a World Cup than win the major tournament of any other sport

We play a confused brand of football at the moment, a blend between Postecoglou possession and Van Marwijk pragmatism. Both can work, but our personnel is off. We don't have a gun lone forward, simple as that. Would have been better off playing the superb Rogic in that role, and giving Luongo a run alongside Jedinak. Opportunity lost, but we must now reboot for our Asian Cup defence in January next year.
