World Cup Soccer Play Offs - Second Leg

OK, aside from the fight between the Swiss and the always friendly and hospitable Turks after their match, the main news was the qualification of Australia for their first World Cup finals in over 20 years.

Their 1-0 victory over Uruguay and some pretty fine saves from keeper Mark Schwarzer during the penalty shoot-out mean that the Aussies will be in Germany 2006.

The other results as follows :

Czech Republic: 1 Norway: 0 (Czechs qualify)
Turkey: 4 Switzerland: 2 (Swiss qualify on away goals rule)
Bahrain: 0 Trinidad: 1 (Trinidad and Tobago qualify)
Slovakia: 1 Spain: 1 (Spain qualify but undoubtedly will play like complete idiots in the Finals, going out in the first round - it's their destiny).
