The Pencil Guy: Hourann's illogical blog

Well, at least it was a decent game …

So much for the nebulous hopes I had of staying up to see an awesome upset.

Two-nil sounds worse than it actually was. The Aussies lost partly due to bad luck, partly because they stuffed up some crucial shots, and partly because the Brazilians were just better. But they weren’t that much better — there was none of the complete out-classing that used to characterise Australian soccer.

Down a goal at the start of second half, I was half wishing the end of this game would mirror Aus vs. Japan from the other day, and the Aussie team did lift their game a bit … but there were so many opportunities that they just didn’t convert!

And then there was that second Brazilian goal. Biggest fluke ever!
