Yet another match I didn't get to see. Following the match on Twitter is no fun. There was a lot of talk in the lead up that Australia needed to win: because we must qualify for the 2011 finals; and Pim Verbeek's job could be on the line. Clearly World Cup qualification is not enough for the FFA!

Against a team ranked #74, we should be able to win at home. But it took until the 74' for us to break the deadlock. Guess who? Yep, Tim Cahill again. 1-0 win. Job done.
