I'm counting on you!

The Socceroos before the Brazil game:

A kangaroo fan:


The Boxing Kangaroo returns!

A tense first half - no goals scored and very tight defense by Australia.
I hope they can maintain this in the 2nd half!

    I'm looking for the Aussies to do some magic! Kewell and Bresciano in particular are starting to look dangerous.

    Agh the Australian defence has fallen apart...and Brazil win 2-0

    Here from Michele.
    Sorry about the soccer game.
    BTW, love that rabbit in your "R" post.

    I'm so depressed, but also kinda impressed that the aussies did keep it to 0-0 for so long. It was still a game to be proud of even if we didn't win.

    BUT that second goal was SOOOOOO offside!!!

    Hi SRP, He's nice and cuddly, isn't he?

    I'm with you Louise, I'm happy we've made it this far and that we did this well against the #1 team in the world :D And we're still in the number 2 spot in Group F!

    But I'd like to see us beat Croatia

    Hope you're still enjoying the football... I've not really watched much of it. My home team (Wales) didn't make it in.

    Here via Michele's.

    Here from Michele today and I am ashamed to say I haven't been following this, at all...I hope it comes out the way you want it to! (lol)

    I'm sorry Brazil won :-( I assume Australia is still in the running?

    I actually just watched a moment of the game. I would have never done that before I met you and My Float. I said, "Hey, this is the same game that Vernicious Knids and My Float are watching right now on the other side of the planet! Wow!" And my hubby said, "What the heck are you talking about?" "Oh, nevermind. You can change it."

    Ah Stepherz, you just gave me my first laugh of the day! Thanks!

    VK. Still in mourning with you. I suspect you've taken to your bed with a Bex!!

    Nikki-Ann, It's not the same when you can't cheer on your own team...though this is the first time in my life that I've been able to cheer on the Aussies!

    Thanks OOLOTH!

    MF...It's not a happy household right now, with Japan drawing to Croatia as well!

    Elsa, we're still 2nd in Group F; we need to win or draw with Croatia in the next game to get into the 2nd round, so we've still got an excellent chance (she says with all of her fingers crossed!)

    Way to go Stepherz...we'll convert you yet :D

    MF, I considered giving up blogging in mourning...but have decided to persevere ;)

    Hey VK, just as well you perservered!! Just like the Aussies, never say die. Although I secretly suspect we'll all be sobbing into our coffees sometime next week. But heck, let's enjoy it while it lasts!
