Australia - Spain (Arena da Baxaida ; 13:00)



Who thought these two teams would be competing for third place and Australia look like favorites beforehand? May be a good game but I think it will end in a draw.

My prediction: Australia 1-1 Spain

No chance of us scoring without Tim. Bresciano out doesn't help either.

Don't know about Bresc but I'm sure Cahill will take part in the Asia Cup. Considering he can still perform well in the MLS and at the WC, he'll want to have a crack at becoming Asian Champions with the Socceroos.

actually we are going through the motions really

but David Villa is trying hard at least, and he got his goal for his reward

I loved the way Villa continuously kissed the crest on his shirt, after he scored. It was his last game for the Rojas and you could see he was emotional on the bench.

The non celebration reminds me of the Spain - Bulgaria game of 1998.

For a second I thought it was equally shocking in 1998, but I guess it was just sympathy, there was a lot of sympathy toward them back then.

Why didn't David Villa play in other games, aging Villa is still better than Costa at International Level.

He's one of the reasons why Spain won so much. Sad to see him play his last game.

not that enjoyable match for the obvious reasons, and i'm sorry to such a wc match looked as mediocre one as this. at least good to see the world champions won their only 3 pts before they leave Brazil. also good for me to see Reina get a chance to play in this tournament.
