Just a short post on tactics. During this game I heard one of the commentators ask why Australia wasn't attacking more often with 10 minutes to go and taking advantage of having 11 players versus 10 Italians (who were content to sit behind the ball and counter attack).
The Aussie tactics were actually very logical. Why take too many risks with 10 minutes to go when you would have an extra 30 mins extra time with the same advantage against a even more tired 10 man Italian team. Their caution made perfect sense especially when you consider the Aussie fitness regime meant they probably would have been the fitter team in extra time.
Nobody could have predicted that Italy would succesfully cheat to win a penalty with literally seconds to go with a very clever dive.
