Football Australia vs Germany - 29th March, Geneva

Hey all just moved to Geneva, and I'm still finding my feet around here. On the 29th of March the Socceroos are playing Germany in a World cup rematch (those dam krauts beat us 4-0 in Sth Africa, still very bitter). As a HUGE fan of the Socceroos the real reason I have moved to Switzerland is the go to more socceroos games however, unfortunately I wont be able to get to Monchengladbach for this one so I have come to the EF fountain of knowledge to find a good place to watch it here in Geneva.

Are there any good Aussie or Sports bars with a good vibe here in Geneva?

Are there any EFers interested in heading down to watch it?

Mate,
once you have the venue for the pre-game "social lubrication", post an event on the social pages.

....post it, and they will come !!!!



@Monkeynut re: Soccerroo games in Oz
The answer is no.
Besides, most of the Australian team lives over here anyway.


I'd love to see that re-match.
the 4-0 wooping we got was a disgrace.
(needles to say that Germany also played really well)

It was the most competitive friendly i have seen for a while. it finished a 1:1 draw, best result really both teams played really well. england was without terry rooney lampard heskie cole etc and frankly looked all the better for it

I had to miss it, wife was watching Grand Designs FFS . Glad our new boy Carroll got the goal though.
Nice results for the Socceroos though, well done

Sore losers........ We care !!!


Germany should be able to run half a team of blind school girls onto the field against Australia and win.

Friendly or World cup final, there is no excuse for your embarrassing loss.

suck it up.

Yep. But: It was a test game and that was what the coach did: test young players. I guess I know who is not playing in the upcoming European Cup... BTW did Germany with the first choice of players beat Kasachstan 4:0 last weekend in the qualifier - so it is the same as always, they only put real effort in it when it counts. They have a track record of embarrassing games in test games, I remember a draw against Luxembourg (!)...

P.S: The team did actually not play as badly as the result makes you believe - they were clearly dominating much of the game. But at the end you need to make the goals...
