Barbarrick, the Croats promised so much after beating Argentina in a friendly a couple of months ago, toping their qualifying table and a spirited performance against Brazil. They wouldn't have been in this mess if they beat Japan, but they gone and left it 'til the last minute.

If they scored another after their first goal, they are just so wasteful. And to think I had high hopes on them after their performance against Brazil. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

In other news, I'm glad that:
1/Ronaldo has finally scored a goal,
2/Japan were leading Brazil for a time back there
3/Ghana, the first African nation through after another Eastern European team who had promised so much in their opening game threw it away
4/I'm starting to find ITV's sponsor depicting the American presenters who know little about soccer is actually amusing
5/ I spotted an Irishmen wearing a Croatian shirt

The BBC commentators really pissed me off tonight during the Brazil game. I've never heard two men kiss the ass of a football team so much before. It was like Japan didn't even take part in the game. At least show a little bit of respect for Brazils opponents.

Pair of clowns

it was definitely less of a war than the USA vs Italy game.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we're through to the round of 16. (take that bruce arena you jerk. Sorry but he deserves that bad luck to the USA though) Schwarzer didn't play because Kalac is suppose to be better of free kicks and corners but he made some dodgy saves tonight i'm not going to sleep now lol until after the next game that is and Hiddink beat Italy last time with korea so why can't we

Pretty bad for the image of English soccer.
He's not too bad of a ref in the Premier League so it's very surprising. One of the commentators was absolutely right in saying that he lost complete lost control of the game in the last minute. It was so chaotic, and that was the embarrassing aspect. I believe there still might be some conjecture of whether it was 2 or 3 yellows, but certainly there were 2 outright penalties Australia were denied, and then in the dying seconds, when he was issued his 2nd/3rd yellow, the penalty was not given (though the time was up anyway). The players seemed to have no idea what was going on, the crowd were confused, and I'm expecting we weren't the only viewers wondering what the hell was going on. Meanwhile, Mr Poll was discussing god knows what and the game should have been declared over. Still, I'm glad afterall. The Croatians as well will have their share to complain about, too. I cant recall what exactly, but it was rather lopsided reffing. FIFA will have a lot to say about this.

i'm sick of hearing about ronaldo's weight.

if you're fat, you can't play. it's as simple as that.

the media and some of you are ludicrous. you have no idea what fat is. none.

Well, apparently Kalac was chosen for his height advantage, he's about 6ft7 I think. Not that his height helped him when he was on the ground scrambling for the ball!!

Anyhow - what a game!! It had everything!! I have to say though, in all my years of watching football, I have never seen such a dismal dismay of refereeing - as a text i got during the game said "FIFA should have his balls on a plate!! How can an experienced ref 'forget' how many yellow cards he's given a player? Isn't that what the fourth official is meant to be for - to correct errors like that? And don't even get me started on the blatant handball against us!!!

Anyway, I'm deleriously tired, been up since 4:15 this morning, and tried in vain to get back to sleep after the game but was WAY too hyper!!

Bring on Italy on tuesday morning - should be a great game. I feel a 'sickie' coming on, I'm meant to be working a night duty Mon night - but i'm not missing this game for ANYTHING!!!

Cheers,
Mandy (one VERY happy Aussie!!)
