Australia versus Italy

The Socceroos have finally bowed out from the World Cup thanks to a penalty given to them in dying moments of stoppage time.

Grosso was great in his acting and did his level best to trip over defender Lucas Neill.

The penalty was finally taken by Totti which sealed Australia's fate.

Lack of big match experiance clearly did Australia a lot of harm. They had ample chances, more possession than Italy and Italy down for some 40 minutes with 10 men after Marco Materazzi was shown a red card for challenge on Marco Bresciano.

Italy has now booked a place in quarterfinals.

only stupid assholes who don't know the game of football will say that it was not a penalty...that WAS A PENALTY FOR SURE....when lucas slid in front of grosso what do you excpect him to do..hit the brakes and run around him or what!!! Any way Australia couldn't make the 10 men difference count(the red card itself was unfair).. So Italy deserved to win the match..
