3-1 3-1 3-1
It is a night (or morning, as I glance at the clock) for firsts.
Tonight is the first time Australia has played in the world cup in 32 years.
Tonight, we scored the first goal Australia has ever scored in the world cup past the qualifier stage.
Tonight, after 2 more goals, Australia won their first ever World Cup match.
Fantastic game and a hearty congratulations to our team in Germany. It was a tough match and there were some very dodgy calls, but we prevail! I’d be surprised if we can’t be heard cheering all across the globe.
Aloisi! Aloisi! Wooooooo!
If you didn’t see the game, you missed a tense, well matched game with a nail-biting finish.
