ASIAN CHAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!
+1
Saw this comment on FB. Accurately sums up my feelings:

"Tim Cahill is is also now in a special group of players that have scored a goal in three world cups. He is the face of Australia in sport across the world and an ambassador for what it is to be Australian. He doesn't dive and he shouldn't and neither should any other Aussie. Change comes from positive not negative."

"To all the naysayer European/South American people here: we are proud because we are a new footballing nation. The kids we saw fight this morning are not fancied, don't play for huge clubs, don't earn millions of dollars. Iniesta is worth more than out whole entire team. We're smart. We know this. But still be can take it to the football royalty and one day we will develop and football will develop here by having experiences like these. And on that day we will shock Germany, we will shock Argentina and Brazil. All because of our attitude."

This performance is sitting in the minds of little 6 year olds with nimble feet being shoehorned into other football codes. By seeing this great and positive football, not only from us, but also from Chile, Holland and Spain, they will start thinking they can be as good as Iniesta, they can be as good as Van Persie, They can be a hero like Tim Cahill. The revolution has begun. We are on the right track, the future of Australian is incredibly bright, and that says a lot about a game that was on the brink of imploding into oblivion in terms of prestige. Long live the football!

I see Australia making it to the finals one day.
Dam unlucky, you guys played well against Chile :(
Buzzing. Ready to showcase the greatest sport in the world to the people of this fine nation. C'MON AUSSIE :D
Asia Cup Draw announced for next January's tournament. We get South Korea, Oman and Kuwait. Luckily enough for me the best game out of that lot (Sth Korea) is being played in Brisbane! Should be good to cheer an Ange Postecoglou run team again.
The first 45 were immaculate. Some of the best football I've ever seen this country play.

It's safe to say Mat Ryan has secured his place at WC, Injury notwithstanding
Great replacement for Schwarzer.

Speaking of Maty Ryan: (Sorry, not sorry)

GROUP B - Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia

We'll need a team full of Stephen Bradburys to make it out of this group alive.
BELIEVE!!!
We're f****d

totally f****d,worked so hard to get f****d
100% record for Ange Postecoglou!
Tobesh look at the fourth page on this chat ;)

WE PREDICTED THE FUTURE. :D

On a serious note: Loads of positives, That was perhaps the best passing game I have seen Australia put forward in a long time, A lot of attacking intent, good to see youngsters get a cameo or two, Rogic's Cameo, and solid defending all round. Good first game.

The left back position is still very problematic though.
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Schwarzer announces his retirement from the socceroos :(

Shouldn't have gone to Chelsea. No playing time....
He went to Chelsea because he obviously lost all the desire to play regularly tbh. I love him as much as anyone, but this is good for the team as a whole, it's better in the long run for Mitch and Mat Ryan to get game time.
