Bloody Marvellous!

The Aussies gained revenge for 2002 in Sydney today when we vanquished Uruguay in the second leg of our World Cup Qualifier to book our place at the worlds greatest sporting event (ok, after the Olympics) in Germany 2006. It took a penalty shootout, and some saves by Schwarzer to get us there in a nailbiter.

This is only our second appearance in the finals, first was 1974, which I believe was also in Germany. Ohhhhh.... it's good to get that monkey off our back (next World Cup, we will be in the Asia qualification group, which does not require multiple qualification rounds as Oceana does).!

I heard about this on the radio.

Australia and Trinidad & Tobago were the big surprises.
