Australia 3 - Japan 1

It's got to be good to be an Aussie today! The Australian Soccerroos finish their first game at the World Cup football finals with flair. Down 1 - 0 for most of the match, Australia scored 3 goals in the last 7 minutes courtesy of Tim Cahill and John Aloisi. It was a nail-biting match with lots of missed opportunities and a dubious goal but in the end the never say die attitude of Australia shone through.

The match started 10:30 at night so with the whole family sleeping I was in the living room muffling my cheers. It's only the first game of the first round but it bodes well so far. Roll on Brazil!
