Tony Jones on Nine News: "In some ways getting their own back for the 4-0 drubbing in last year's world cup." Kind of extravagant, don't you think? It behooves me to inject a level of perspective into matters. As our cricket empire wanes, No.1 in world soccer is merely a matter of time:
SOCCEROOS skipper Lucas Neill labelled his team's comeback 2-1 win over Germany as 'amazing', and a measure of revenge for last year's World Cup thrashing by the powerhouse.
For Australia's German coach Holger Osieck, this was arguably his country's biggest win on a football pitch.
Osieck had every reason to have a smile after the win, erasing the memory of Rale Rasic's ill-fated World Cup campaign in the former West Germany 37 years ago.
