Methinks a small New Zealander may be missing the use of his arms come March...

I'm just trying to remember the last time Australia last made the World Cup and the last time New Zealand made it.

Care to inform me?

Australia was 1972.
New Zealand was 1984.

Both was their only time and they ended fairly convincingly in the first round!

I'm really excited about tonight, I like any game that has this amount of emotion running into it from the public.

For real??? I'm surprised either of us made it, and so recently, to be honest. Actually, more's the point I have no idea how good your lot are at footy, but as a nation I know we cannot play at international levels. We're just not in the league. I lump most countries in our region in this category when you compare with South America, Europe, etc.

Fascinating.

Australia should make it regularly after this year now they have moved into Asia. They have a quality group of players playing top flight football across Europe (although many of them suffer from constant injury or shit attidudes). That base should be more than enough to see them through most years.

Australia is comfortably better than most non-South American/European nations that qualify for the Cup. The problem is, that our region wasn't competitive enough (on the field or off) to warrant automatic qualification for teams, like North America or Asia. The funny thing is while Australia is competitive enough to make the World Cup they would be totally smoked (if we suspended all geographic knowledge) and they tried to qualify for Euro2008 or the CopaAmerica.

All of Oceania should be folded into Asia, it would improve the quality of all countries.

I agree all of Oceania should be folded into Asia. I reckon if managers of teams who's leagues our players end up in begin to give our guys more leeway, we'd also stand more of a chance. As it is, we cant get a cohesive team happening and part of that problem is not getting our guys back often enough or with any organisation so we can enter these comps prepared.

I'm still pissed at the way Uruguay behaved at the start of this, so I'm still just hoping we win so we can flip them the bird for their prima donna antics

NZ making the world cup will be a real possibility from 2010 on though. As long as they can better the fifth best Sth American team to get that half free entry - then bravo! However as Australia has showed - its not easy. And frankly, I reckon as the Solomon Islands showed thi year - NZ getting that point is far from a sure thing! Can you imagine Solomon Islands VS Argentina for a world cup berth? MAGIC!

Anyhow, Australia may have an easier time of it in Asia. I hope Aust wins through tonight, but methinks Uruguay will get it.
