Holland 3, Australia 2:  The Socceroos became the first team to be eliminated from the Tourney, but not before throwing a scare into everyone's fashionable World Cup pick.  Tim Cahill, playing what was probably his final World Cup game (he drew his second yellow card today and will have to sit against Spain), scored a fantastic opener, and a hand ball penalty in the box set up a go-ahead goal ten minutes into in the second half. The Orange, however, never lost their composure, drew even almost immediately thereafter on a blast by RVP (who will also have to sit out the next one), and won on a long-distance blast by Memphis Depay with just over 20 minutes left.

By far the best opening week to the World Cup I can recall....
