HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Getting away from the usual posts to more important news. Australia beats Japan 3-1. Australia now confirms themselves as a 'World Power' by beating possible challengers to the World Cup trophy Japan. In what was not so unbelievable circumstances. Australia scored 3 goals in the last 6 minutes to serve a pasting to the Japs.
Australia now sets their sites on their next game against Brazil which could prove challenging for the in form Aussies. After the victory captain Mark Viduka was asked what it would be like to take home the World Cup tropy he replied:

"We'll take it one step at a time at this stage, we've really got to concentrate on winning our next game first... But I decided to get the missus to clean out the trophy cabnet."

You've got to love the guy!

In what was contreversial circumstances Japan took the early lead in the match with the first goal resulting from a Nakamura free kick. The Celtic midfielder with typical Irish luck hit the back of the net after a blatent shove by another Japanese player kept Australian goalkeeper out of any chance of making the save. The goal was still awarded however. The referee later apologized to Australian players. I think history will show that Australia beat Japan 3-0.

Brazil here we come!
