Fans disappointed and frustrated as Socceroos World Cup dream ends

Socceroos have deserved more at World Cup – Skoko

Socceroos have deserved more at World Cup – Skoko

If the Socceroos beat already-eliminated Peru, and if Denmark lose to France on Tuesday, then Australia could sneak through to the knockout stages.

The winger scored a lovely first-half goal and was a constant threat to Australia's bigger and burlier defenders.

Next up; the two remaining games from the aforementioned Group D (7 pm kick-off BST). I would have preferred that France won, so that we can feel more pain right now.

"One thing I'll take is he just says "be yourself out there" and 'have guts to play football".

They could, however, take solace from a win which saw them climb off the foot of group B and finish their campaign third. I'm sure we'll all learn from it, we'll be better from the experience.

Fifa World Cup 2018 is getting more excited with each passing day.

Kangaroo stops play during Australian soccer match
Eventually, the Belconnen coach used his auto to chase it away through an open fence, the match resumed, and his side won 2-0. A kangaroo dashed onto the field and laid down during the halftime break of an Australian women's soccer match.

"I don't think so", the Celtic star said.

"We had to be strong and overcome two consecutive losses", he said.

Despite this, our nation wakes up disappointed and exhausted from a loss where we didn't make the most of our chances, and we contemplate what we have learnt in the last four years that could have better served us during this year's competition.

"I'd like to congratulate my players because it was a very hard match from a psychological point of view".

One fan, clad in green and gold, bemoaned the Socceroo's seeming inability to score, a frustration felt by other supporters who held their heads in their hands for much of the game.

"Against Denmark it was 1-1 and we speculated on that result and we never pressed them, not once".
