And A Nice Finish To The Weekend

I love SBS. Whenever there is a major soccer match on they show it live across the country, unlike Channel 9 and the cricket whereby many one day internationals are shown as a delayed telecast. Really helpful when daylight savings kick in and WA is three hours behind most of the eastern states.

Last night the Socceroos played Jamaica at Craven Cottage, Fulham's home ground, in London, in an international friendly. The Jamaican defence was pretty ragged and we won 5-0. The passing was of a higher quality than I have seen before and it was a nice game to watch.

Probably the funniest thing I saw was when the national anthem was being sung and they showed the crowd and this guy wearing a Perth Glory shirt was standing and singing along. Why would a guy from Perth take his soccer shirt all the way over to England?
