CORRECTIONS:
- Right at the end I say 141 when I mean 142.
- I said Australia didn’t get out of the group stage in 2014 World Cup but did in 2010. tbyrn21 has pointed out it was actually the 2006 World Cup when Australia last made it past the group stage! Feels like yesterday.
- If you spot anything else let me know!
