Aussie victorious in their first World Cup clash

Just got back from the live screen at Circular Quay. What an atmosphere. It was an incredible game. I’ve lost my voice. Australia started off well, but an early questionable goal by the Japanese set the scoreline against us. Then as the missed chances started to pile up and the seconds ticked away, there was an increasing atmosphere of nervousness and depression all the way up to the 84th minute when Cahill sent the ball into the back of the Japanese net and the Aussie crowd into the atmosphere. A second and third goal sealed the match and everyone was rapturous. 3-1. Absolutely bloody fantastic.
