After battling their way out of a tough group, Australia won the chance to face the might of Italy in the first knockout stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Many sides would have been overwhelmed by the task at hand, but the Socceroos played as though they had nothing to fear and nothing to lose.
The Australians enjoyed large swathes of possession against Marcello Lippi's Azzurri, and even though they were struggling to break down a determined defence, they would have fancied their chances in extra time.
Italy were down to 10 men, after having had Marco Materazzi sent off, and Guus Hiddink still had all his substitutes in reserve as the game entered the final minute of injury time.
The Aussies would never get the chance to attempt to crack open the future world champions, however, as Fabio Grosso cut into the box from the left and toppled over a prone Lucas Neill to win a controversial penalty.
Francesco Totti stepped up and coolly converted to send Italy through.
Australia may have lost the game, but it is still one of the most talked about World Cup moments down under.
