It was a great game, just a shame we had to lose under the circumstances we did but we can't be poor losers and it is amazing we got so far.

Yes, and you've certainly got some good players, Cahill, Viduka and Kewell for instance - all of whom we know in the UK. Better luck next time - at least YOUR country reached the finals... mine?

Yes Mrsmac, you got a fine squad with great spirit. Mr. Hiddink, as usual did a fine job with them and they give us more than a few scares. It was a pity Harry Kewell was out yesterday. Good luck to them in the future!! (Until they meet Italy again next time.. )

"Ohne Holland fahr'n wir nach Berlin.. fahr'n wir nach Berlin.." *sing*

Ishbel, I told you there would come nothing from the oranjes..

but it was rather unfair, the these italians kicked the Socceros off... made a horrible match and finally won with a penalty that was not worth it..
Frank and I won't go to any italian Restaurant for at least this month.


but tonight.. Germany - Argentina....

Well, yes..... the Dutch team didn't exactly cover themselves with glory, did they?!

I was sorry to see the Aussies go out, too.

I hope Germany win, cos according to my daughter's BF, Argentina would be a much tougher team to beat for the English (my daughter lives in London and her BF is English!) and they'd rather face Germany than Argentina
