Gus Hiddink is thinking of leaving a number of players on yellow card out of the Socceroos team to play Brazil, as he wants to limit any suspensions against Croatia as it is likley going to be the game that makes or breaks there chance to progress to the second round.

 

I would really feel gutted for Tim, as I guess he has looked forward to this game since the draw was made. Once in a lifetime opertunity for Austrailian players to take on Brazil in the World Cup.

 

I would be gutted if I was in his shoes, especially ofter coming of the bench and turning the game agaist Japan. I think Hiddink should let him and the other players play as this is to bigger game for them to have to sit out.

But if he gets TWO yellow Cards( Brazil & Croatia), its carried over to the next stage, and misses game.  only if you have one yellow it gets cleared.

 

Drogba has had 2 and misses next game.

Watched the game thought Oz played pretty well didnt think Tim did too much in the game really didn't think he had too many chances to go forward and I can understand why he brought Kewell on instead, result doesnt change much I dont reckon I think Brazil will beat or at worst draw with Japan. So I think Oz only need to draw against Croatia even if they had got a point today it would be exactly the same case really so it doesn't really matter about today for them.

Foul-mouthed Kewell in hot water

Harry Kewell could miss Australia's final group match after being charged by FIFA with insulting referee Markus Merk on Sunday

 

The Liverpool winger has been reported by Merk for swearing at the German official several times after the final whistle of the 2-0 defeat by Brazil - and disciplinary proceedings have been opened against him.

 

A decision will be announced before Australia's last game of Group F against Croatia in Stuttgart on Thursday.

 

FIFA communications director Markus Siegler said: "FIFA have opened disciplinary procedures against Harry Kewell. It was reported in the referee's report that he insulted the referee several times. He has until tomorrow [June 20] to respond and a decision will be taken before Australia's final group match."

 

Meanwhile, a FIFA's disciplinary committee are still studying the USA v Italy match in which there were three red cards. Italy's Daniele de Rossi and the USA's Pablo Mastroeni and Eddie Pope will all miss at least one match and a decision on whether they will receive extra suspension will be announced before June 23.

 

Roma midfielder de Rossi in particular is in danger of being given a further ban after elbowing Brian McBride in the face during the 1-1 draw, leaving the Fulham striker dripping blood.

KEWELL CLEARED FOR KEY CLASH

Harry Kewell has been cleared to play in Australia's final group match after FIFA dropped a charge that he had insulted referee Markus Merk following the 2-0 defeat by Brazil.

 

FIFA said the report by Merk that the Liverpool winger had insulted him after the final whistle was "inconsistent" and the case has been dropped.

 

Kewell is now eligible to play in Australia's last game of Group F against Croatia in Stuttgart on Thursday, where victory would see the Socceroos qualify for the first knockout stage.

 

FIFA communications director Markus Siegler told a media briefing in Berlin: "As far as the player from Australia, Harry Kewell, is concerned, the FIFA disciplinary committee decided to close the procedure due to inconsistent reports by the referee."

 

Siegler would not expand on what the inconsistencies were, but it is thought they were over whether Merk had understood exactly what Kewell was saying.

 

The Australian had a heated exchange with Merk after the final whistle and wagged his finger at the match official, but said afterwards it had been "just heat-of-the-moment stuff".

 

There may also have been problems with FIFA taking disciplinary action because under their regulations, Merk could still have issued a red or yellow card to Kewell even though he had blown the final whistle.

BULLSHIT!

 

He should have been at least expelled from the WC finals for calling the ref "figing poo" and than later abusing him!

 

What a total figing farce this has turned out to be!
