Australia by Lilyas Australia by Lilyas
This is my homage to the Australian Football Team that joined the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany after 32 years of absence. They played a very good tournament but unfortunately lost their match in the round of 16 on June 26 against Italy very very unlucky in the 95' minute by an questionable penalty! :tears: I really wished they would have attained the quarter-final because they played a better match than the Italians.

Since they were wearing this wonderful sunny orange and dark green in that match I used these colours in this wallpaper. There is a slightly different version of it in the zip-file. It additionally has the writing "Australia" down in the corner! Wallpaper size 10524 x 768.

Go, Germany!!! :heart:

Nice job, looks amazing. now i need to find a blanket of it or something and run out onto the field with it :P (joking, of course)



By the way, Its Actually Australian "Soccer" Team over here. You see, our football is something with a ill-shaped ball (not as round as a rugby ball) that spends more time in our hands than it does on our feet. Its more like rugby without all the protection. ( [link] )

Yeah, I've recently learned that in this case the Australians are more related to America than to England. ;) I never will understand how something can be called "Football" when it's mostly playded with hands and not even with a real ball, ha ha!

Hi Lily!:wave: I found this in someone else's :+fav:s and just had to comment on its beauty! Being an Aussie myself, I remember being a little sad when we didn't win that particular game, but the world knew we should've won and that made me proud! This is a beautiful and vibrant artwork from you, as always! :rose: :hug: Cheers, Coco

Thanks for the support of Australia. You can imagine how much that game stung. Especially as all the other countries were expecting us to go really badly.

And I love your artwork. Great use of our colours, wonderful composition and good use of shape. :)
