Australia's campaign didn't reach the previous dizzying heights of Germany, nor did it produce any memomarable moments. The Australian football team produced the same results as we did in Germany, 1 win / 1 draw / 1 loss, but couldn't qualify from a stronger group. Australia played for 56% for their first two games with 10 players and a tunnel visioned strategy didn't help their cause for the knock-out rounds. But let's face it, Australia weren't favorites to pass through to the final 16 and they didn't produce any sparkling performances.
What Australia's performance throughout the World Cup 2010 campaign did prove that the Socceroos are set for a period of change and during this change, the Aussies need to develop and move forward.
