Struggling Oranje beats Socceroos…

Wow, what a night! Where to start…. I said before the game I wasn’t too confident. And I also predicted a wishful 0-3, for Oranje. Well, we did get the 3 goals. And we got a big hit in our confidence. Holland is back on the ground after being a little bit lifted after the […]

But not for us ( I hope). For them. The Socceroos. Or maybe: The Suckeroos, hahahaha. They love their expressions in Australia. No worries mate! She’ll be right mate! Well, if Robin, Robben, Daley, Wesley, Bruno and Jasper have anything to say about it, it will be “She won’t be right!”. Australia however, is pretty […]
