Australia did it under Venables albeit in the qualifying stages - undefeated but still missed out.

1990 - lost semi final on penalties .
Just one of a number of near misses.
Doesn't sound embarrassing to me.

Must be easy to be successful when you just change the team you are going for each week. Some of us are loyal.to our club/national side.

Major difference between embarrassing and being pleased. Eg. I am not pleased unless we win but losing in a penalty shoot out in the semis to the winner isn't embarrassing.

However, seeing as you claim to be "aussie", have they ever had a non embarrassing world cup?
