Italy vs Aus final score 1-0 looks alright. It is here that the numbers never tell the full story. Italians would have to call themselves lucky winners rather then deserving winners. There was nothing the Italians or Aussies could do for 90 minutes as the match seemed headed into extra time.
There was a penalty in the dying moments was awarded, rather a harsh one on the Aussies who would have really stretched the Italians in the extra time that wasn’t to be. The penalty was awarded and Totti completed the formalities for Italians making in 1-0 in favour of Italy.
It is a heart break for Aussies. This is exactly what’s sports is not about. Aussies are down and out. The game of Football is the real loser, Aussies meanwhile can keep their chins high. It would be remembered as a sad day for the game of football.
