It definitely is a cruel world, especially if you were an Aussie football fan. Just 12 seconds left for the pre-quarter finals match against Italy to go into overtime, Australia’s worst nightmare came true with the unintentional foul against the Italian player. Resulted in a successful penalty shootout for Italy and they got to go home happy. Personally I wish this hadn’t happened to the Aussies who have entertained us with terrific performances in all their World Cup matches. Unfortunately, as Bill Gates once mused – ‘Life is not fair. Just deal with it’ – we all have to move on accepting our inevitable fates. Better luck next time for the Aussies.
