31 - Soccer Australia vs Serbia

Post no. 31 here:
Australia vs Serbia in Melbourne for a friendly match.

The match was played in good spirit, which was different to the weather which was rain and more rain. The rain did not stop the crowd from turning up with over 30,000 people braved the cold to watch The Socceroos play against Serbia.

The match ebbed and flowed towards both sides, with neither team breaking free. Both teams had chances but were unable to capitalize, and the drawn scoreline of 0-0 is a fair result to both teams. Serbia had a higher percentage of ball in possession but they were lacking the class to 'put the ball in the back of the net.'


The Socceroos!
The large crowd tried to edge The Socceroos over the line with their songs and energy, including lighting flares and intimidating the small percentage of Serbs that had traveled to watch the game. Hopefully things are looking up for The Socceroos and their world cup qualifying, because soccer is becoming more and more popular here in Australia.

Joke of the Day:
A man consults a therapist and states, “Doc, I’m suicidal. What should I do?”
The doctor replies, “Pay in advance.”
