Moore to Come – World Cup Reflections

June 23rd, 2006 · No Comments · FIFA World Cup, Football (Soccer)

Another exciting day for Australia with the Socceroos at the World Cup drawing with Croatia, doing just enough to go through to the second round, to play Italy next week.

I couldn’t bring myself to head into Federation Square in Melbourne city to watch the game at 5 am with the thousands gathered there, though, in the end, it would have been a great place to enjoy the spectacle. Instead, I curled up at home on the couch with the heater on, which was not too bad either.

There were a lot of anxious moments, with Australia behind for much of the match. A penalty to Craig Moore and a field goal to Harry Kewell got us through. The team has surpassed all expectations and done a lot for the sport at home. There are plenty more sleepless nights to come.
