ideally yes, but if we were it wouldn't be till later on
the media in the paper today are saying serbia and ghana aren't tough teams. the hell they aren't. Serbia are a very hard team to beat, most people liken them to the red tea towel team croatia. which is completely false, serbia are a far superior footballing side to the croats..
ghana are also a tough team but they can be beaten.
if pim deciedes to be defensive then the socceroos will get put to the sword.
The best we can hope for is to finish 2nd in our group which, with the cross over over Group C and D, will mean that we would play England in the Round of 16.
Croatia's form for leading into Germany 2006 was as good as Serbia this time around. They were undefeated in Qualifying, Serbia lost 2. Relative strengths of the two is a matter of opinion but it is interesting that Croatia was ranked 20 going into 2006 and Serbia is ranked 20 now.
Our record against Ghana is really good. 4 wins, 2 draws, no losses SBS said on the morning of the draw. Although that should give us some confidence past results count for nothing, it is all up to form on the day.
