Australia's Technological World Cup Advantage

The Socceroos are running software that looks for patterns in attacks of the opposing team. It also shows the effectiveness of different response strategies by recording where attacks fail when countered. I've seen how Australian team played on last world cup qualifying matches and not impressed by their style of play and performance. However, in the 2006 World Cup, I was impressed by how they play with Japan and Brazil so far. This is the first time in more than 30 years that Australia have qualified for the World Cup finals. May be the software they have been using is really helping the Socceroos??
