Australia Weeps

It was 3am. The traditional explanation of the offside rule using beer bottles had taken place (twice), the chips were but crumbs in the bottom of the bowl and the cat and dog were asleep on two laps. As the 0-0 match neared conclusion we discussed with gradually mounting excitement our chances of winning a penalty shootout.

"Italy has only won one of its last five shootouts"
"Excellent - that must mean they're bad at them!"

Italy is one man down and our confidence is up. Star striker Aloisi comes on and we are on the edge of our seats...

Too sad to write any more :-(
