But every four years this household comes to a virtual standstill for a few weeks during the World Cup. In the cup we follow three teams. Obviously 'The Socceroos' (Australia), and also England but both have been eliminated to make it into the final 16 teams. The Swiss, our third team are hanging on by their fingernails.
Australia was ecstatic after leading 2:1 against the Netherlands for all of 4 minutes, after Tim Cahill scored his second goal with a header.
Over all, the Socceroos have a higher standing now than the current World Champions, Spain, who have departed Brazil scoreless. How great is that?

We record the three matches which are played in the early hours every day, watch match 1 during breakfast and the other two matches sometime during the day.
I'm sad to say that our third team, Switzerland (ranked No 6 in the world according to FIFA), also lost this morning to an excellent French team (ranked No 17), - 5:2.
