Brazil 2-0 Australia
Sunday, 18 June 2006

1858: tiger_soup
Brazil did justice to their talent today. Good dominant play especially in the second half...I think Australia gave too much room to Kaka and Ronaldinho.

1854: makaay_10
Really unfair for Australia. Australia deserved to win I reckon but just had no luck and that referee, well a complete joke. One of the most biased games I've ever seen refereeed. An absolute farce.

1852: ruon01
NO WAY IN THE WORLD DO WE DESERVE TO LOSE 2-0....still confident we can make the second round ...bring on Croatia!!

1849: sleepydawg
Although maybe unlikely, an Australian goal would really set the game alight. But on the other hand a Brasil goal would finish it.

1841: austinspur
Ronaldo is finished at international level. Robinho is the new rising star and he will be instrumental in ending Ronaldo's Brazil career.

1817: ruon01
Kewell..what is he doing!! What a MISS!

1807: rpitchfo
Ouch 1-0. 1805: tiger_soup
Ronaldo seems to be lot better than the last match. But to win this match Brazil definitely need two good strikers who can make that difference. Probably Ronaldo or Adriano is going to be replaced in the second half.

1754: shearFox
I almost drifted away during that half hopefully second half is better.

1750: Besonders
Solved at last, the mystery of why Ronaldo doesn't run any more.

Because when he does, Roberto Carlos blasts it into the stand. So what's the point?

Think it's a myth that Roberto Carlos is good at free kicks what is his success rate? Whenever I watch him he usually blasts it over or wide

1710: Bluevaio
Ronaldo has always been my favourite International player, its nice to see him playing well again.

Kaka is a threat to every opposition, the guy is a prodigy!!

1658: slaterslovechild
Go you mighty Aussies! If they lose it wont be because we lack self-belief and they certainly wont ever give up. If we win, the party will be so loud we'll keep the rest of the world awake for the next week!

1651: gunwharfblue
Good luck to the Aussies. They will put up a fight and they've got an excellent coach. But I have to say I think Brazil will win this one.

1650: mainstay
Brazil will be going through, I take them to win v Australia 3-0.

1647: supporternicky11
Hopefully, Ronaldo is fit. Heard the rumour this will be his last chance. If he doesn't play well, he will not be playing the rest of the World Cup. Brazil 2-1 Australia.

1644: makaay_10
Kewell will be brought on sometime during the game if Aus are a chance to get something out of it. I must say I am surprised at the inclusion of Sterjovski but who am I to question the Guus? Anyway prediction Brazil win 3-1.

1633: Sydney-bluenose
Must say I'm surprised that Bresciano and Kewel aren't starting, it looks like Gus is going 4-4-2?

1621: rivaldo_9
Brasil to thrash the Aussies 4-0 a goal each from Juninho, Robinho, Kaka and Ronaldo.
