Australia beats Japan 3-1. From Soccernet:
Tim Cahill scored twice in the last six minutes and John Aloisi added a third in injury time as Australia made a winning return to the World Cup finals with a 3-1 victory over Japan.I didn't pick Australia to progress beyond the group stage but after this win, who knows. Australia's next game: Brazil! Now, where did I stuff my Australia national flag?
Everton midfielder Cahill came off the bench to score in the 84th and 89th minutes to overhaul a one-goal deficit after Japan had taken the lead following an error by Mark Schwarzer in the first half at Kaiserslautern's Fritz-Walter Stadium.
