Aaaaand we didn't go through, serously you were not expecting us to beat Japan right? I know being a Bangladesh cricket fans could make people hopelessly optimistic at times.

I am an avid Socceroos fan, but I reckon Syria deserves to go through and complete their fairy tale ending by qualifying in the World Cup and bring some smiles to the people in Syria amidst all their sufferings. If we can barely scrape a win against Thailand, I really don't think we deserve to play in the World Cup anyway.

This Australian team is fiery and nonforgiving, we will bounce back, hope you didn't forget the 2-2 draw with Germany and 1-1 Draw with Chile.Syria should be a cake walk, and hopefully we beat the USA/Honduras.

I would not be so optimistic. Those were friendlies, so stronger teams don't tend to take them very seriously (would be like us beating India A in cricket). And back then most of our team were on top of their game, esp. Mat Rayn. But these days Mat Ryan really sucks at 1-1 situations and almost always concedes a goal because he can't spread himself well enough. Right now he is the biggest weakness for the Socceroos and I think he should be dropped. Rogic, Leckie and Loungo showed some promise earlier, but their games have dropped since then considerably.

I'd say Aaron Mooy is the only world class player that we have in the team right now.

Mat Ryan is the best we have, no other potential GK to replace him, unless Mark Schwarzer decides to step out of retirement.

I no longer follow it that religiously anymore but I think the first 4/5 games we played under Klinsmann. We lost most of those games by a huge margin. That is why we are in this situation. Hopefully we will qualify directly.

Today's game was pathetic to say the least..

I applied for WC tix in russia.. now I don't even feel like going.. hopefully i don't match. But then it will be sad if other ppl match who I convince to put their name for WC russia. Should have waited (today is the last day and still time left for phase 1 )..

Imagine Argentina also gets eliminated... gonna be some s7756 world cup.

Three teams that I like watching.. USA .. Germany.. Argentina. In that order. Rest are borefest including brazil :p (well not always )

Orpheus bro you should totally go to Russia. Watching a world cup match live itself is an experience of a lifetime.

thanks bro... starting to feel the excitement a bit again. I was so preoccupied with US game didn't even bother to ck the others...

I applied for the finals and semifinals... assumption is i should be able to see at least a germany and arg team. They are very difficult to get and my plan was to go for following team USA if the finals didn't pan out.

Didn't go for team usa following to start with is because most likely the group stages of the games would have been all over russian city and don't feel particularly too good about travelling outside Moscow and st petersburg. Maybe the anxiety is from the unknowns..

anyone lives in russia here?

anyways now that usa is out, not too sure now what to do if i don't match in lottery.. if i should be persistent for this high demand finals...Group matches would have been peace of cake to get.

Compared to these never die attitude, watching today's game i felt like vomitting. I guess team USA don't deserve to be in the WC with this bunch of sissies. Having hard time accepting this loss.

i think group A is the easiest. Australia will have hard time coming out of that group. I don't like the way they set up the pool this time. Its trying to eliminate group stage surprises...group of death?

i guess most of the surprises happened pre qualification lol.. besides a portugal spain and belgium england game no other group matches really look too salivating. Without group of death type of seeding, pre game excitement for a particular game dies down a lot i feel

In my opinion, messi is a better player than Maradona. And he should leave an Argentinian legacy, not just with Barcelona. All the clips are available from the past to watch and you can make up your own mind. I know Maradona talks a lot as he achieved great things but I would watch messi over the other M anyday of the week.

I hope they go past the group stage.. as long as they go, I will get to see them live in stadium as I have tickets to both possible games whether they are 1 or 2 in the group. I

If you guys know anyone who can get me a Brazil Serbia match, will forever be indebted. Fighting against compouter programs and touts.. very difficult.
