24 YELLOW CARD – Australia defender Craig Moore is booked for dissent.
26 – GERMANY 2 AUSTRALIA 0 – Klose puts Germany in control with a brave header as he gets between Australia captain Lucas Neill and Schwarzer to meet a perfect Lahm cross from the right. Klose has now scored 49 goals in 97 games for his country.
