Asian Cup 2007

Recommended Posts

Very unfair and undeserved score line for the Thai team who dominated the game but didn't succeed to score.


Jesus, Limbo - I accept that I may not be terribly unbiased here, and I dont know diddly about the World Game compared to the majority of regulars, but isnt that whole 'scoring' thing the aim of the game ? I could understand if it was a one or two goal difference, but *4* ? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt that considered an 'emphatic' win in soccer/football ?


That said, a champion team will always beat a team of champions, and that has long been the Socceroos Achilles Heel : they just dont get enough match practice as a team, IMO.


(I'll know return quietly to the primeval swamp from whence I came and leave this thread to the true believers).

What I'm saying is, that for the resistance and domination of the Thai team, a 4-0 score is not in line of how the game developed on the pitch.


It makes the Aussie team look better than they really are and I think they will have a tough nut to crack vs the Japanese team.


The only thing your lot can hope for is that they're growing into the tournament. As a team, they didn't convince me yesterday and it wasn't untill Cahill came on that some good chances were created and more over, he gave the assist to all 3 goals in the 2nd half.


It's also Thailands lack of scoring ability that didn't help them.
