Socceroos through to World Cup

Congrats to the Socceroos, who have finally qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 32 years. I watched the game live on TV, and could hardly watch the ridiculously tense penalty shoot out. Only disappointments were the booing of the Uruguayan national anthem and some homophobic banners. I wonder how that translated in the Uruguayan media? Just remember, apparently a bus having eggs thrown at it, the Aussie team being booed and one woman having her camera stolen in Uruguay somehow equates headline news here.
