Making the 2006 World Cup was both a magnificent blessing and an awful curse. Magnificent in the complete and utter joy I had (well, and eventual heartbreak), but it comes with the curse of expectation. Now I HAVE to have the Socceroos in the World Cup every 4 years.

So last night it began in earnest with a home game against Qatar as part of the Asian qualification process. Would we smack them? Or would we have a nervous stumble early on? Most resoundingly the former. Our first half was fantastic. Qatar looked like they came for a draw, but when Josh Kennedy put in our first, it was all over red rover. Thanks as well to Tim Cahill and Mark Bresciano, 3-0 up at the half was a great feeling. There is nothing like being part of 50,000 people jumping up and down when the ball hits the back of the net. Sure, the second half was pretty weak, but when you are 3 zip up, and probably jet-lagged to hell, then I forgive them.

Giddy up.
