2:00AM tomorrow (Victorian time) is China v Australia in matchday 6 of their World Cup qualifying campaign.

We are a point ahead of Japan and sit second in our group, with the top 2 qualifying. Four games to go including this one.

Japan play Oman at 3:00AM tomorrow.

A horrible VAR call in this mornings game gifted China a 1-1 draw, and in the other game Japan beat Oman. With those results we've fallen out of the automatic qualification spots. We are 1 point behind Japan who sit 2nd and we've got 4 games left.

Next round of games are in January, we really need to reset and go again or we unbelievably could be out altogether.

A terrible result for us. We seem to be really struggling to score.

Reckon the penalty was there though. What's his arm doing there?

Why did I wake up for that match. I had hope we’d put in a strong showing but we just have horrible entries for the strikers to run onto. Constantly passing it back and or hoping for a miracle cross. Cahill’s not there anymore and Souttar’s out with an ACL

Yeah I think I was worked up when I posted because it looked pretty touch and go to me initially but I looked back at the highlights and I don't know what his arm was doing out there either. I just can't believe the position we're in after the start to the qualifiers that we had. It'll be a real bottle job if we don't go through, and we still need to play Japan & Saudi Arabia in our last four games (they sit 2nd and 1st in the group at the moment respectively).

Following the Socceroos feels just like being a saints supporter. Poor Mat Ryan dragging us through every single game of his national team career

A half arsed Liverpool side with a comfortable win over Porto to remain undefeated in the CL group stage with a game left, and also their 16th consecutive game of 2 or more goals - no English team has done that in 82 years. If we beat Milan in the final game of the group we'll also become the first English side to win every game of a CL group stage.

Along with that, Milan scored in the 87th minute to send Atleti to the bottom of the group. Just perfect.
