There was a bit of a backstory as to how that all came about though.

I love your premise though all it takes is an egotistical South American country coming over on a stormy Wellington night and going down 1-0.

Well as someone from Asia I did think about folding Oceania into our region but it's hardly fair to our teams, isn't it?

Then again, Turkey are playing in Europe.

Naturally Asia would be afforded an extra place for the new influx of teams.

I'm a fan of the NZ soccer team, because two Kiwis play for my favorite team, the Columbus Crew. (I'm a season ticket holder, despite living 3 hours away!)

The rumor going around is that next year Australia will join the Asian confederation, but the rest of Oceania will remain separate.

Australia was pushing hard for this, because this way they'll have some automatic spots available to them. Asia finally gave in when they finally crunched the numbers and looked at the Aussie tv money.

The source for this was a Japanese official with loose lips. Apparently it was being kept secret because they couldn't make an announcement like this in the middle of qualifying for the 2006 World Cup. That said, since it's not official yet, I suppose it still might change. Especially if Australia qualify for the WC and advance to the round of 16. That might be enough to get an automatic spot for Oceania.

Otherwise, New Zealand will be left all alone atop Oceania. We'll see how long that lasts.

Apparently Australians don't know how to pump up soccer balls, as the ref has already rejected two of them in the first minute!


Great crowd for this game. The house is rockin!

Hardly. The pussies from Uruguay are simply wasting time by whining like a bunch of women.

Come on Uruguay, one goal is all it takes!

(Actually, to be honest, I'm not too fussed either way, but it's fun supporting Uruguay around Australians. )

Well, Australia has 'won' 1-0, leaving the aggregate score level on 1-1 and necessitating 30 minutes of extra play.

I'm not fussed who wins and even I feel tense!

This is exciting. It's been a good game, though it was getting a little sloppy towards the end. Not too surprising considering how tired most of these players must be getting.

I think you mean 'actors' instead of 'players'.

No score in the 30 minutes of extra time. We're down to a penalty shoot-out now.

Australia saved the first Uruguayan penalty kick.

After two shots a-piece, it's 2-1 to Australia.

And one of SBS's commentators is REALLY annoying me.
