Despite the jet lag, thousands of Australian fans gathered in the middle of the night this Wednesday night in Melbourne to watch the latest Socceroos match against the Danish Vikings on a giant screen in Federal Square during the Global tournament in Qatar. Far from favorites, the Australians finally delivered a surprise by beating the Danes 1-0 thanks to a flawless cross from midfielder Matthew Leckie in the 60th minute.

At this moment, there is an explosion of joy in Melbourne. Furious supporters had to wait another 30 minutes before releasing smoke bombs. After the final whistle on the Federal Square it was 4 am, and Melbourne’s main square was literally on fire. Scenes of jubilation worthy of winning the World Cup final… After all, it has been 16 years since the national team reached the 8th final at the World Cup! So far, Australia only knew the thrill of knockout matches in 2006. The adventure ended in the eighth round against future world champions Italy (1-0). This time the Socceroos will have to outdo themselves against Messi’s Argentina this Saturday to hope to win a quarter-final spot.
