Some Facts:

Daniel Allsopp became the hero of that match with his last minute goal to secure passage into the final 16. The young Socceroos had to face Argentina in the final group game which was an epic match with a 4-3 victory and 4 goals of Kosta Salapasidis; again a last minute goal (90min). But that clash has cost too much energy and the young Roos were too tired to beat Japan in their final 16 match.
