Cause Australian are idiots.

It is called soccer in Australia to prevent any confusion with all the other football codes. Australia is one of the few codes to call it soccer. Every other country calls it football.

And when you consider how the game is played using only the feet, as opposed to the other football codes where they use everything, I agree that it is the only real football.

brilliant game by Australia v's Denmark. We didn't get the score we wanted with a 1 - 1 draw, but that's the best I've ever seen the aussies play.

If only they can figure out how to do that all the time

France’s Hernandez Cleared To Play Next Game Despite Sustaining 11 Separate Concussions

In what has been described as a miracle recovery, France’s Lucas Hernandez will line up against Peru next week despite suffering from 11 concussions and a broken leg in the game against Australia.

Hernandez – who also sustained a spinal injury in the second half – bravely played out the game against Australia even though he broke his leg in the 11th minute, and was frequently concussed.

“It’s amazing how he gets these quite serious injuries game after game, but then seems to recover. It’s so brave,” one observer said.

Doctors are concerned for Hernandez’s safety should he come up against serious physical contact in the next game. “If he is actually pushed or elbowed, there are concerns he might die,” one medical professional said.

Bit of diving going on, yup.

they played OK. Lots of room for improvement. Not enough attack in my opinion.

Still to hold a $1B euro team down to a 2:1 loss is pretty good. I think the Aussie team will be happy with it. The French media on the other hand will lambast the French team.

And I don't agree with France's first penalty. I still say he touched the ball.

Go Australia


and who's the fuckwit on ozpol who the other week started a thread deriding soccer? I bet he supports that aerial ping pong instead.

the world cup attracts more viewers than the olympic games. Tell him to stick that in his pipe and smoke it
