Both strange matches. Kewell equalized and i can't fully remember but something about him being just offside is still in my mind, 3 yellow cards, a massive mistake by Kalac letting in an easy ball and then Australia being the stronger side only for Grosso to take a dive in injury time and Italy win 1-0 due to a penalty.
For other news with Australia they were beaten 1-0 by China a few hours ago and fielded a very inexperienced side as they have already qualified for the final stage of 1020 qualifying. Australia and South Korea will be in different groups. The 2 groups are of 5 teams with top 2 in each group going through and the 3rd teams play off and the winner plays the winner of Oceania for the 5th spot.
I have Italy for the next game but again won't be surprised to see Spain win, I hope Spain do have some success, For such a good team they are lacking success. I still have Germany to win this tournament.
