At a time when Aussie football fans were mad with joy, Socceroos manager Graham Arnold delivered a scathing spray to skipper Mat Ryan, but why?
The Australian fans went wild when Mitch Duke’s header found its way into the back net in the 23rd minute against Tunisia.
21 clock Japan 0 vs Costa Rica 1
MIDNIGHT Belgium vs Morocco
3 AM Croatia vs Canada
6 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING Spain vs Germany
Wild scenes played out in stadium audiences, in bars around the world and in Melbourne’s Federation Square.
But in footage captured by the BBC, Graham Arnold’s joy quickly turned to white-hot anger.
The Socceroos manager celebrated briefly before venting his frustration at skipper Mat Ryan.
Arnold pointed and yelled at the goaltender, shouting for him to go and celebrate with his teammates.
The Socceroos manager’s moment shows how badly he wants the team to be truly connected.
Saudis pull handbrake on players’ Rollers deal

It will go down in history as one of the greatest surprises at the World Championship of all time, but the entire Saudi Arabian team will not each receive a new Rolls-Royce for their exploits.
Team coach Herve Renard has swiped a report that his 26 players would receive the luxury cars from the royal family after their shock 2-1 win over Argentina.
Several publications reported that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman would be spending RM6 million worth of Rolls-Royce, but it seems the claim actually surfaced via a tweet from a Pakistani dentist who was ill-informed.
“There’s no truth to that,” Renard said. “We have a very reputable federation and ministry of sport and it’s not the time to get anything right now.”
Saudi Arabia lost 2-0 to Poland in their second group stage game on Saturday morning and needed a win to secure progression to the knockout rounds.
Saudi Arabia striker Saleh al-Shehri also called the report false.
“That’s not true,” he said. “We are here to serve our country and do our best. Those are the rewards.”
Maybe. But a Rolls would be a nice addition.
