Last night the Socceroos took on arguably the best football team in the world, the Brazilians. Like most Aussies, I woke up in the middle of the night to watch the game. Australia lost 2-0, but again showed that they deserve to be on the world stage, and with a win or draw next week against Croatia they can make it to the next round. Such a feat would have been unthinkable a few years ago, but not surprising considering Australia’s rich sporting history. Against Brazil they matched them in most areas around the field and must have had them worried when the score was still 0-0 at half time. The Brazil team is not dominating the tournament as expected, and at this stage don’t look like going all the way.
