On June 12, Australia secured their first victory in the 2006 World Cup finals, defeating Japan 3-1 with two goals from Tim Cahill and one from John Aloisi in the final eight minutes. The match was marked by controversy over a disputed goal awarded to Japan. Australia's subsequent match against world champions Brazil on June 18 was overshadowed by allegations of betting among teammates. Despite holding Brazil to a 0-0 scoreline at halftime, Brazil ultimately won 2-0. The following day, player Harry Kewell faced scrutiny for an altercation with the referee, but charges were later dropped. On June 22, Australia drew 2-2 with Croatia, with contentious referee decisions drawing criticism. Despite these challenges, Australia advanced to the next round to face Italy. In the match against Italy on June 26, Australia was eliminated after a controversial penalty awarded to Italy in stoppage time, resulting in a 1-0 loss. Coach Guus Hiddink concluded his tenure with the Australian national team following the defeat, with the team receiving recognition as the AFC National Team of the Year for their performance in the tournament.
