    Australia is always a tough team to battle, even for top-tier national teams. They gave us hell in 2008. Of course, the game was meaningless to us and the Australians were working their butts off to clinch a spot in the quarterfinals, but still, we lost by 31 points. When the game is on the line for Australia, you don't want to be battling them .

    The test match results should tell us on this game's likely outcome. But I'm expecting Australia to make this one physical.

    Heh, Brazil's inbounds play at the end of the half fooled the timekeeper.

    Brazil is getting a lot of play from the US media, Chris Sheridan picked them to play the US for the gold. They have potential but that seems like a reach...

    Are you watching the game online?
    The link I was watching the game on from sportlemon.tv is no longer working and I can't find any other free online streaming channel

    No, on television here.

    Shouldn't that have been an unsportsmanlike foul by Mills on Huertas? Just reached up from the ground and grabbed him.

    Don't like the decision not to foul down 2 with 29 seconds left.

    Wait, what channel? NBC 5? I hope it's not one of the ESPNs or TNTs, because I don't have those.
