Mr ABBOTT (Leader of the Opposition) (3:33 PM) —On indulgence, Mr Speaker: the events in this House were not the only contest overnight. There was another contest in the great game of football—soccer—and Australia won that contest 2-1 over Serbia. It is important to acknowledge the fact that our Socceroos gave their all. Yes, it is sad that their World Cup campaign is over, but I am sure that Australians everywhere are proud of the guts and the commitment they displayed and wish them well in their sporting futures.
