it might come off as being a little rich for me being a big england fan and to rag on greece, but they have no right being in this tournament. yeah, i know they qualified, etc. etc., but they play the WORST brand of football in europe.

thankfully ibrahimovic saves the day.

zlatan... the sultan of sting...

were you in the fan zone by chance? we might have ran into each other without knowing it.

i hate crowds like that... i need space. thought i was going to die in the crush of people trying to get in for the match.

italy got what they deserved. they need youth on this team in the worst way.

what got me most was how awful their defensive play was... their coverage on the counter-attack was stunningly awful.

lol...that's not why we're upset. I wouldn't have minded if the Aussies had lost fair and square but Italy was awarded a penalty kick AFTER the game was officially over and it was that kick that sent the Socceroos home.

Boooooooooooooooooo!

^technically the referee's fault then, not something you could blame on the Italians...if you want to watch one of the dirtiest games ever I suggest the Portugal vs Holland match from the last world cup...most red cards ever at the World cup...even in it most of the time the way these matches go can be blamed on poor refereeing, so I don't get the hate for the Italians because of the Aussie match, the Italians were equally robbed in South Korea as far as I can remember.

All that said the Italians did deserve to lose, a very lacklustre display...what they need to do is play Chiellini and Gamberini at centre back, start Grosso keep Panucci. Play Pirlo and De Rossi, Gattuso looks a bit spent these days. Start with Cassano and Del Piero, keep Di Natale on and give Borriello a go instead of Luca Toni who looked really bad the other night. Aquilani should also be given a decent run out.

Would never have come to that if the Ref didn't send off Materazzi in the 50th minute

The Aussies were dominated up until that point, it was only a matter of time

And the penalty was during the game, what kind of comment was that ?

Yes, they were. Of course, then it was in favor of the plucky underdogs so it isn't very fashionable to complain about it. Quite honestly though they had their chances to put that one away in regulation too and didn't take them. Then they got fucked big time in Extra Time.

But still fun to watch, you never know how he's gonna react to some of the ref's decisions, but some of his facial expressions are priceless.

Seeing this old footage is interesting. There really was no end to how much filth and dirty tricks South Korea got away with and how many wrong decisions by the refs that went their way.

This Czech-Portugal game is easily the most fluid game so far

Love seeing the end to end action

Wow. Sucks to be Switzerland. Lost Alex Frei in the first game, ran their butts off in back-to-back games (one in a downpour) and get an early trip home to show for it.

Also, if Turkey and Czech Republic draw their last match, second place in the group will be determined by fair-play scores and then a coin flip, as both teams currently have 3 points, 2 goals for and 3 goals against.

EDIT: Nevermind, it looks like it'll be penalty kicks since it's just a 2-way tie.

I wish they both could have gotten a point for that one. Fantastic game, great entertainment on a long flight.
