Soccer-Australia in party mode: reach World Cup knockout

Australia celebrated the Socceroos' improbable World Cup knockout round run on Thursday by hailing Graham Arnold's new "golden generation" and calling for a national holiday.

Numerous spectators gathered in Melbourne's Fed Square in the middle of the night to see Australia defeat Denmark by a score of 1-0. As the Socceroos advanced to the round of 16, they were left dancing in the smokey light of fireworks.

Arnold's team was comparable to the group that advanced to the round of 16 at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, but it lacked the credentials of the players who played 16 years earlier and became known as Australia's "golden generation."

"Inform your youngsters. Tell your family members. Inform your pals. Put it on a T-shirt, shout it, whisper it, and wear it to bed.

Work hard and you will succeed." Adam Peacock, an Australian soccer analyst, published a piece on the Herald Sun's website.

Saudi Arabia celebrated a national holiday after defeating Argentina the previous week, and a photo of a Socceroos supporter waving a sign that read, "Give us a public holiday," went viral on social media.
