Socceroos

Posted in football, Uncategorized at 3:32 am by thelawthoughts

I’m going to go out on a limb and say THAT penalty WAS a penalty, but what a great game of football it was last night.

Really, teams shouldn’t complain when they are 11-10, they shouldn’t put themselves in a position where one good or bad refereeing decision makes or breaks the game. It was a simple story of the fortress-like Italian defence meaning we couldn’t get enough dangerous shots on goal.

Whilst the Socceroos utterly did Australia proud, one has to ask themselves –  ‘can you remember Buffon making any great saves?’ I can’t, which means there simply wasn’t enough pressure put on the Italian goal. Until the send off, Italy were all over us and, really, should have been up at least 1 or 2-0 at haf time.

Well done, boys, what a great effort.
