they have more individual talent than some south american nations thats for sure
but they have 0 balls, and in a playoff between 2 teams of similar technical ability, balls makes the difference
not to mention smog, rotten oranges and the altura

I think Australia dont have a chance in hell of beating Colombia or Uruguay in a 2 legged play off. Its not cause they're not a football nation (Not the same as Colombia challenging the Aussies in the Rugby World Cup Semi final or something but not as far as ppl think.)

However Some people are actually thinking that the playing the last game IN Australia might make some pressure for the South Americans.

The only concern is that the Aussies go all out 11 men defense in the first game and then win it at home. But I'd actually bet on Colombia easily winning 2-0 in Australia. They're amazing.

Uruguay
- 4 Time World Champion (2 World Cups and 2 Olympic/World titles)

one day we'll get past a south american opponent? considering this is the last time we qualify thru oceania (going thru asia as of 2006) I think you guys are safe

we have had a disatrous lead up with our old coach being results driven in friendlies and not blooding any new players and hiddink coming in a few mnths ago has had 2 camps and 2 friendlies (1 tonight) to try and sort things out..... we have no hope...

its got nothing to do with "balls" australia in any sport always play with balls and will go hard, we just wont be good enough end of story

So if your reasoning is right then there's not a single amazing team in the world as all countries and clubs have lost at home at some moment.
I agree Brazil and Argentina are on another level but that has nothing to do with what you are saying. Losing is part of the game.

Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day, set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Uruguay favourites to meet Aussies in World Cup play-off

October 12, 2005

MONTEVIDEO (AFP) - The tensions are mounting in some corners of the South American continent ahead of the final opportunity to secure the fifth and final World Cup ticket for Germany.

With four teams already qualified for the 2006 finals Uruguay, Colombia and Chile are vying to claim fifth spot in the group after the final round of matches which would land them a play-off place against Australia.

Only a point separates the three countries who are hoping to join Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Ecuador.


Australia won the Oceania group and with no direct qualification must play-off against the South America zone fifth placed team.

Whoever that turns out to be may be causing some concern Down Under, especially if it turns out to be Uruguay.

Uruguay, who currently occupy fifth place in the 10-team group on 22 points, would initially appear to have the hardest task but on second glance their home advantage against group winners Argentina could prove decisive.

Very few teams go to the Uruguayan capital and come away with the points.

Early on in the campaign Uruguay, coached by Jorge Fossati, succumbed to two shock home defeats, by Venezuela (0-3) and Peru (1-3) a few months later.

But since then, the team which has notched up five wins and seven draws from their 17 games so far have given little to their visitors at the Centenario stadium.

World champions Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw in Montevideo back in March and their last match at home ended in a 3-2 defeat for Colombia.

Fossati is adamant they are going out to grab their chance.

"We have the capacity to go out, square up to and beat Argentina," he declared, although he will be hoping his players are sufficiently fired up after their scoreless draw away to Ecuador at the weekend.

Colombia are sixth in the table on 21 points and hoping their already qualified hosts Paraguay step off the gas in Asuncion.

Colombia coach Reinaldo Rueda was raging after his team let slip a 1-0 lead against Chile last weekend to finally end up sharing the spoils with their fellow hopefuls.

"We had the match in our hands and we let it slip," he lamented.

"We have to go and do in Paraguay what we failed to do here. Just as everyone predicted, it has all come down to the final game."

Chile coach Nelson Acosta, a Uruguayan, was somewhat more philosophical over his team's chances ahead of their hosting of Ecuador.

"We're going out to win obviously, but our fate depends on a few other results."
