Default Re: 2010 World Cup-South Africa

All Aussies who saw the Italy v Oz quater final in the last WC remember Grosso gaining the match-winning penalty for them with a dextrous shimmy into a prone Aussie defender and doing a swan dive that would achieve a 10-10-10 in the Olympics high board event :)

That game was really hyped here in Sydney because 1) it was the best we'd done in the WC and 2) we have a lot of Italians here. I live near Norton St, which our Little Italy where they showed the match in the streets on a large screen, with thousands of revellers packing the streets.

Before the match I wandered down there with a cheap digital camera to capture the moment. It's not easy to keep a steady hand when on the night setting in a crowd so the pics came out kinda arty :)
