giggler99 I think you've got the times in the OP wrong. The first Olyroos game is in 30 mins (i.e. 8:30pm AEST) and not 7:30 like the first post says

Brilliant start for the Aussies! 1-0 up on Argentina and on top of the group (at least temporarily because Spain and Egypt drew earlier) :fire:

Some interesting names in the Argie lineup.

Macallister - strange name for an Argentinian.

And the bloke up front's first name is Adolfo.
Pretty sure there's been some significant immigration from the UK (Scotland and Wales in particular) into rural Argentina over the years. IIRC there are communities in Patagonia that are primarily Welsh speaking

Must have been interesting in those places during the falklands war.

Golden opportunity gone begging. Pretty sure VAR would have ruled that on-side had Wales been more composed

LOL is Brenton Speed taking the mick? "Perez comes in and stamps on Arzani" Unless I saw it wrong seemed like there was little to no contact with his foot?

Coming from a commentator who was hanging sh1t on Argentina for going down easy earlier has been sucked in a few times by Arzani.

Perez did stand on his foot, but Speedy calling it a stamp was laughable

Geez a pretty impressive first 45 overall. Rode our luck a bit but genuinely taking the game to them which is so pleasing to see.

Souttar been great at the back, Atkinson impressive and Arzani has so much talent, but too often tries one too many step overs or goes down too easily.

That dual booking was just embarrassing - now we are in a great spot.
