So a brave and plucky Croatia went down to Brazil tonight which leaves Australia at the top of Group F on goal difference!
I have to admit that Croatia looked pretty good. I thought the second-half display in particular was excellent and with just a bit of luck they could have snatched the draw.
One positive to be taken from the match was that Ronaldo was definately looking unfit and the Brazillians in general seemed to tire badly. The one big negative is that they seem to be able to score from anywhere. They also seem to be quite good at diving.
I'd say that in spite of the scoreline Croatia seemed the better team, which augors well for Australia's match against Brazil on Sunday.
Realistically though, I thought both teams would have outclassed Australia. Let's just see what Guus Hiddink pulls out of his sleeve.
