Australia through to the Soccer World Cup!!

Australia vs Uruguay: 0-1 in Montevideo Australia vs Uruguay: 1-0 in Sydney No goals scored in extra time in Sydney Australia won in the penalty shootout 4-2 in front of a sellout crowd in the Olympic Stadium. There's a beautiful banner article at the Sydney Morning Herald website, and more at the ABC's news section. The Socceroos are off to Germany in 2006. This is the first Soccer World Cup appearance for Australia since 1974. W00TW00TW00T!!!!!!

Well, good for the Socceroos, but the world cup won't quite be the same without "10-man" Uruguay and their celestial brand of erm, robust football.

Yup, that's true. Ditto for Iran. Uruguay has won a World Cup or two before now though --- it's time to let somebody else get in :-) I watched the qualifiers vs Iran last time around... total heartbreak.

Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!
