Australia was successful in making it to the semi-finals for the 12th consecutive time in the World Cup. Australia won the World Cup in 1986, 2010 and 2014. They have made it to the semi-finals of every World Cup since 1978. Spain captain Marc Miralles made a blunder in the quarter-finals that shattered the team’s hopes of progressing further. He failed to convert a penalty stroke four minutes before the final hooter. At that point Spain was trailing 3-4. Had he converted the penalty stroke, the match could have gone to a penalty shootout.
