Well done Aussies, certainly surprised me. :thumbup:
Shocked me as well. How has such a poor side got to the last 16?

The Danes will rightly be looking for an inquest into this world cup. Drawing with tunisia and losing to australia will not be seen as acceptable.
Aussie spirit ;-)

That's normally completely shiraz it up but blame it on someone else.

Good point, much better to score in every game than top the group and not lose.

All just stats as you know. They mentioned on one of the games today that england have already scored more goals than they did when they won the cup in 66.

We didn't win the world cup until 1870.

Whether you concede or not is irrelevant. All footballing countres in the world played a game to decide the best. More of a world cup win than 1934.

My world is fun, you seem to think we won it 4 years earlier. Why would you think that game (that didn't happen) was a world cup but not an actual game?

No- I thought it might go by the name 'Football'. That way it would make perfect sense.
