93' It's all over. Australia day at the World Cup as Cahill and Aloisi came from the bench to deliver victory for Guus Hiddink.
93' Remarkable comeback from the Socceroos and all three goals have come from Hiddink's subs. Japan, who defended so well for so long, are in pieces.
93' AND NOW THEY HAVE THREE. Aloisi strolls through to sidefoot past Kawaguchi and Australia have thei first victory in the World Cup.
