Aussie victory in World Cup
Let me start by saying! You bloody rippa!
Ok, so the bad thing was I did not get to see the game. Can you believe I was actually working at midnight in Manila! Oh well. When I got back to the hotel, I caught the highlights and went to sleep very satisfied.
Here is comments and photos of the game -
Let us summarize the last 10 minutes of the game! Unbelievable -
84mins GOAL! Japan scrambled the free-kick away for a long throw-in but Kawaguchi flaps at it and Cahill is there to pounce and score Australia's first ever World Cup goal.
86mins Right down at the other end Japan look dangerous as Cahill definitely commits a foul in the box but he gets away with it as the ref awards a corner rather than the penalty it should have been.
88mins Fukunishi has the chance to end it as the defence opens up for him but he cracks his shot wide.
89mins GOAL! Unbelievable hit from Cahill. What a five minutes he has had. This time, he picks the ball up on the edge of the D and smacks his shot in off the post. It's safe to say he is better in the opposition's half.
90mins +1 Moniwa is pulled off to allow Masashi Oguro, the Japan forward, on.
90mins +2 GOAL! Aloisi makes sure of the three points. Cahill was involved again, feeding him 20 yards out and the big man just ran and ran before slotting into the bottom corner.
FULL-TIME. That's it, Australia somehow snatched victory in the final moments of the game. Tim Cahill completely turned the game on its head after coming on from the bench. He scored two, set up another one and could have conceded a penalty. It's Australia's first ever World Cup win. Japan do not deserve to lose by such a scoreline but they paid for not taking their chances.
