Australia lost in the 1/8 final elimination round of the football world championship against a very weak italian team. They had a realistic chance of winning this thing. I'm not saying the austalians played better football, but they were the underdogs and they were not far from winning this game. This could have been the sensation of the event.
Anyway: Austalia, you have my deep sympathy. Hopefully we will see you again in 4 years in South Africa!
