But then won the World Cup as hosts in ’98. Maybe it took the two failures to learn and restructure and succeed in ’98? I’d like to believe that football in the streets was the real reason. I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think anything close to this exists in Australia and it’s a real shame.
The Guardian posted some cool background information related to this documentary. Worth a read before watching.
