AUSTRALIA gave their supporters much to cheer during the opening stages of their World Cup clash with France… although you might not have known it by looking at one fan.
The Socceroos came out and had a right go at the reigning world champions, with Craig Goodwin’s goal sending them to dreamland on nine minutes.
Graham Arnold’s side are being backed by 7,000 passionate fans that have made the trip to the Middle East to support their country in Qatar.
Local telly directors sought to bring a flavour of that support to their viewers, broadcasting shots of Aussie fans to those watching at home.
One bearded fan decked out head to toe in yellow and green Australia gear didn’t appear too excited to be shown on the big screen, however.
Spotting himself, he appeared to mouth the words: “‘S*** we’re on the f***ing telly.”
Fans noticed his mysterious reaction, sharing their amusement online.
One joked: “Definite ‘I’ve pulled a sicky to be here’ vibes.”
While a second tweeted: “Can’t say it without an Aussie accent.”
Another added: “I can actually hear the accent.”
After the joy of Goodwin’s opener, things swiftly went downhill for the Socceroos.
Adrien Rabiot equalised for France on 27 minutes, with Olivier Giroud tapping his side in front shortly after the half hour mark.
