Socceroos vs Thailand

Australia finally delivered! A 4-0 win over Thailand overnight was sufficient to see us through to the quarter-finals. Unfortunately, as we finished second in the group, we will meet an in form Japan on Saturday. This has the potential to be a great game, with Japan out to avenge their World Cup defeat and Australia finding a bit of form.

Socceroos vs Iraq

Our second round match and we needed a big improvement on our first match. I headed down to the Nags Head along with well over 100 other fans. And we left sorely disappointed with a diabolical performance from Australia. I can't believe I used up a night out for this.

Socceroos vs Oman

Our first game ever in the Asian Cup and I didn't get to watch it as it was only on pay tv. By the sounds of it though, I didn't miss much. We could only manage a 1-1 draw and we were lucky to get that. Tim Cahill came on as a sub and scored an injury-time equaliser, reminiscent of his starring role against Japan in the World Cup. After coming into the tournament as one of the favourites, we clearly have some work to do.

Tim Cahill now has an enviable record. He is the scorer of Australia's first goal at a men's World Cup and Australia's first goal at a men's Asian Cup.

Australia Qualifies For 2007 Asian Cup

Australia defeated Kuwait 2-0 at the SFS in its second group match this evening. Results elsewhere and the withdrawal of Lebanon, mean we have qualified for the finals already. The Socceroos squad was made up entirely of A-League players. While a bit scrappy, they got the job done. The ABC has a match report.
