Even SBS seems to have embraced the sickening parochialism that no one outside the EPL counts. Why snub Real Madrid in the UCL lead up! I'm not sure there's any other team with more success.

I hadn't heard of Thibaut Courtois before watching the highlights but I don't think anyone could complain about the mad Belgian keeper's MOTM performance.

The scorer Vinicius Jr is no slouch, La Liga G+A of 17+10 is 3rd.

Not sure why the Benzema goal was disallowed, but he's won both the UCL & La Liga Golden Boots, and should pick up the Ballon D'Or which will precede the World Cup.

I'm still filthy with Mo Salah. Back when he had an unassailable lead in the EPL Boot, I accidentally Layed Son-Heung Min for a little too much @270. Mo then tanked big time and I had to endure the torture as the pair tied. Unlike Euro they don't decide on G+A.

The World Cup is with SBS this year rather than the Optus debacle last time.

Below is from Fairfax today. Exercept from the article below and the link is below it.

But Optus has announced it is increasing the monthly subscription fee for non-customers to $24.99 from August 1, while eligible customers will be charged for the first time at $6.99 per month.

It is Optusí first price change since shocking the television industry by scooping up the Premier League rights from Fox Sports six years ago, but comes at a time when the cost of living is spiralling out of control for many Australians, and with the broadcast landscape Ė particularly when it comes to football Ė experiencing major fragmentation.

 Those who were getting Optus Sport for free through their phone plans will now face an additional cost on top of other services they might pay for to watch the Socceroos, Matildas and A-Leagues (Paramount+, $8.99 per month), the UEFA Champions League (Stan Sport, $20 per month) or Italyís Serie A and the Scottish Premiership (Kayo Sport, $27.99 per month). That additional cost will be nearly four times as much for those who donít have an Optus phone.

Socceroos downed UAE 2-1 this morning, and now face Peru next Tuesday in the final qualification hurdle.

Same venue as today, which has to be far more preferable than at the deadliest COVID place around.

Hrustic scored the winning goal with a deflected volley from outside the square. He plays for Frankfurt as benchwarmer/midfielder where he's scored 3 goals from 33 matches.

Credit where it's due to Arnold.

Anyone watching throughout the qualifying period would have said we were no hope, looking lost and disjointed, we've taken the hard route having to qualify through the sudden death of the UAE and then Peru. We deserve to be there.

Didn't notice a single decent shot at goal throughout the 120 minutes.

Too many long lobs out to the forward flanks.

The Somalian Mabil impressed with his wing runs after he was brought on late. He's moving to La Liga's Cadiz who will fight to avoid relegation.

For once the Socceroos held their nerve after their bad start in the shootout.

They will get knocked out in the group stage as in same group as France and Denmark. The Socceroos have no attack at times and no hope at the World Cup to progress to next stage unless they play attacking football.

I rather us lose 4-1 or 5-2 than 2-0 or 3-0 losses. Letís score some goals.
