World Cup

Australia 3 Japan 1. Well that's Everest climbed for the Green and Gold. Beating Brazil will be the football equivalent of landing on the moon.

Thanks to our famous Dutch coach: Guus Hiddink. He did it before with South Korea

Yes, he is very special, isn't he. Would there be a better coach in international football?

I've been following the world cup with the Joga.com extension with Firefox, keeps me up to date as things happen! Very impressive.

I am a little sad though that today my home team (USA) is out after losing to Ghana 2-1. But I guess not too much was expected of our team. Now that my team is out, can anyone give me another one to root for?

In other news, Brazil creamed Japan todat 4-1, Italy beat the Czeck Republic 2-0, and Australia and Croatia had a draw 2-2.
