Viduka puts it wide! I don't believe it.

Then Australia saves the next kick! Unbelieveable!

After four shots each, it's Australia 3-2.

Australia wins the shoot-out! What a thrilling contest. Australia is through to World Cup 2006.

Oh, and unbiased commentators? Ha, no. These guys are going nuts.

And for all those naysayers, those harbingers of doom, John Aloisi, the man who got the last penalty, the man who is sending us to the WORLD CUP, the genuis of the round ball, is from

ADELAIDE!!!!!

That was fantastic. Even I found myself shelling out massive support for the Socceroos! I'm very happy for them!

(Also I made a killing on SportsTab )

I wish it was New Zealand.

I will never get over this pain.

These guys really deserve it, couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys either. Maybe it's my love of the underdog, maybe it's my Oceanic pride but fuck I'm really up for this.

CrashedCar's post just reminded me. Was I the only one slightly offended by the crowd and commentry tonight? The booing of the 80,000 people in the crowd each time a Uruguayn even made as much a pass completely surrended any moral high ground it's supporters want to take now.

The team on the field however.

Most of the game Craig Foster and I were in synch, especially about the Australian corners (why they kept floating them high when the keeper would get them ). I wasn't too offended by them booing, though they shoulda kept quiet during the anthems. So he got a bit hyperbolic, it was a hyperbolic situation.

Anyway, from what I remember of the first leg, the Uruguayans weren't that respectful either.

I didn't mind the complete enthusiasim that they had, and I totally understood the reasons for it. I was more bothered by the comms saying things like "It will be a traversty if Australia lose" and "Justice was served" etc etc. The difference between the two teams was marginal. Australia were solid no doubt, not taking anything away, but a truly "great" performance would have seen them nail Uruguay when they were tierd in the last 20 mins of normal time.

No arguments there about their finishing. They're gonna have to work on that if they want to do well in the WORLD CUP! but their general team work was a millions time better than some of their previous games.

Tonight they didn't get bogged down in midfield and their passing was spot on. Very, very good result and justice was definitely served!

And did you see their coach and bench? Not the most well behaved bunch I've ever seen!
