Oh Dear!! How Embarrassing

We went along with 62000 others - probably as many Aussies as Germans - with hope in our hearts.
We danced we sang we blew our vuvuzelas and beat the drum; we flew our flag with pride and gave as good as we got from the German faithful on the way to the ground.
What a disaster! Outplayed all over the strip. Beaten for pace and skill.
With the exception of the first four minutes before the first goal and a brief 'revival' after half time, it was like watching the All Blacks play St Philomena's primary school at Rugby. Enough said - it was an embarassingly poor effort with not one Australian deserving recognition.
With our tails between our legs we endured another half hour of what the South Africans call crowd management and then home to bed.
Early start this morning to get our flight to Victoria Falls. Thanks heavens for the sight-seeing; it would be pretty depressing if all we were here for was the `'soccer`' - `'Beautiful game`' - What a joke!!!!!
