Australia: 3 Japan: 1
I apologize for what happened in my Liveblog of Australia vs Japan. You may have noticed on your next refresh the content was gone. My incompetent internet provider MyDestiny was at it’s best again. When I hit the saved button the internet connection went down and when I refreshed the page 99% of the text was gone.
Anyways, after Japan scored the only goal with less than 20 minutes remaining I thought the Socceroos where dead.
As it turned out they scored three goals in a stretch of 8 minutes led by Tim Cahill with two goals who came in as a replacement for Marco.
It happened so fast that the Japanese stone wall defense was crushed enroute to the Australian’s first World Cup Win.[tags]FIFA World Cup, FIFA World Cup 2006, World Cup, Germany, Australia, Japan [/tags]
