Australia win 4-2 on pens

…and for one day, Mark Viduka and Harry Kewell turn back the clock 4 years and sort of resemble world class players.

Courtesy of Wednesday’s 2nd leg 1-0 upset at Peterborough, Burton Albion and manager Nigel Clough have earned a glamorous FA Cup 2nd round home tie…with Burscough of the Unibond League.

    Hiddink coached Soputh Korea the last world cup, so his record is looking quite impressive by now… meaningless fact: 3rd place team Turkey in the 2002 WC failed to qualify for 2006, 3rd place team Sweden in 1994 WC failed to qualify for 1998… (tho Croatia, 3rd place in 1998, did indeed qualify for 2002)

    switzerland beat turkey at home 2-0 and lost away 4-2, switzerland advances on aggregate (away goals are worth more).
