Socceroos campaign over
24.06.2010 - 25.06.2010 7 °C
Big game against Serbia was not enough to get the boys into the finals. Most experts here recognized that our boys do not really have the fine ball skills of the better teams but in soccer a lot can be achieved with teamwork persistence and constant hard work on the field. That's what we saw from the Aussies last night. If only we had had that team on the field against Germany. Unfortunately "we" still believe that there is an official FIFA policy to fix games and that Aus is always on the receiving end. Time for the soccer fanatics to grow up and recognize the limitations of our players. The kiwis demonstrated what can be done with unsung heroes and hard work.
We have discovered we are to suffer at the hands of bad Sportsnet organisation. Had we been informed we could have flown from Nelspruit to Cape Town this morning. Instead we will sit on the coach for six hours today to get back to Joburg and then fly out early tomorrow morning.
