The World Cup is full of surprises, and we are in the middle of one right now in the Australia-Netherlands game in Group B. Netherlands took the lead thanks to an Arjen Robben goal off a remarkable run.
70 seconds later, the Australians tied the game with a wonderful goal off a volley from Tim Cahill. He struck the ball out of mid-air and rifled it just under the cross bar. It might have been the goal of the tournament.
In the second half things got better for the Socceroos. A handball in the penalty box by Daryl Janmaat, which looked accidental, gave the Socceroos a chance to take the lead.
Mile Jedinak stepped to the spot and put it past the goal keeper to give the Australians a remarkable and shocking 2-1 lead over the Netherlands, a spot none of them expected the Socceroos to be.
Like the Dutch lead earlier in the game, it wouldn’t last long though.
