Remember 2005? How could we forget?
Anyone who was at Sydney's Olympic Stadium on November 16, 2005 will have the experiences of that night etched indelibly into their memory banks.
When John Aloisi fired home THAT winning penalty and set off on his shirtless sprint down the touchline, 83-000 fans joined him in utter ecstasy.

Regardless of what happens in the Caltex Socceroos' away game against Japan on August 31, they won't secure their World Cup qualification.
Even a win in Saitama might not be enough.
Similarly, a loss or draw in Japan won't rule Australia out.
It may all hinge on what happens at AAMI Park on "Thai Tuesday".
Occasions like this don't come along very often, so when they do, you'd be mad to be anywhere else.
Because who would want to miss a night like that?
