Go Aussies ~!

After more than 30 years, the Socceroos have finally qualified for the 2006 World Cup in Germany!!

Woohoo ~~!

It must of been the most nerve-racking Soccer game I've seen in a long while. Especially since the Socceroos had to beat Uruguay by two goals to make it to the World Cup. The Socceroos lead by 1-0 at the 90 minute mark. The match went into extra time, and then going into the dreaded penalty shootout. In the end, the Socceroos defeated Uruguay 4-2 in the penalty shootout.

Man of the moment must have been the Goalie (Mark Schwarzer) who made two historic saves.

I must say though, there are some dirty players in the Uruguay team. The classic moment was when one of the Uruguay players was rolling around on the ground in pain (faking it) and the cameras caught him peering through his hands to check if he scored a penalty kick.

My hands are all red now - I think I was slamming them down on the wooden table at the pub a bit too much. My voice is also hoarse from all the screaming. In the end, the whole pub erupted in-line with the whole Telstra Stadium as Socceroos substitute John Aloisi netted the winning kick.

Must go get Socceroos jersey !!!
