I'm over the moon!!!!!!! The Socceroos just deserved to go through. Croatia were unlucky cos they played well. Now it's Italy. Guus Hiddink defeated Italy four years ago. Let's do it again Guus. Come on Socceroos!!!!!!!!!!!

What a game to remember, Kewell has scored the biggest goal in Australia's history. But man was that ref awful or what?

2159: So Near, So Kranjcar
It's always a shame when the better sides are wrongly knocked out in the group stage. That's happened to two teams today, Croatia and Czech Republic two technically gifted sides have been cheated out be inferior opposition today.

2150: LondonMark
Graham Poll has had an absolute shocker tonight. He has managed to miss two penalties and there was more than a hint of offside about the Kewell goal. Now he has managed to give the same Croatian player two yellow cards without a red. This is frankly appalling refereeing, the worst we have seen in this World Cup and it's an Englishman, how embarrassing is that?

2145: The Pain
I'm rooting for the Aussies but that goal clearly should not have stood.

2-2, Kewell looked offside when the ball was headed on.

2-1 to Croatia, why on earth did Hiddink change the keeper? He has been terrible!

What does everyone think about the penalty decision for Australia? I don't think that it was deserved.

I'm not Australian. I suggest you look at the replays after the match and judge for yourself. That was a clear penalty, Viduka was brought down, no doubt about it.

1-0 Croatia. Srna makes up for his penalty against Japan!

1940: ABC
I played the game on Pro Evolution as Croatia, and after a gritty and uneventful game, scored through Prso in the last ten minutes or so!

1935: anonymuncle
This game is too close to call. Croatia have the quality but Australia are playing for each other and with belief.

1910: eggsmell90
Croatia are the better side and I believe the combination of their desperation to win and the Aussies cockiness will see Croatia win.

1905: TurkishDelight
Think Australia will do it - with a win not a draw - Hiddink is awesome and the players are completely committed to his tactics. Viduka has looked good and will be up for it against the nation of his forefathers.
