Australians are review-bombing London's Big Ben in retaliation for England beating the Matildas
| Last updated
It's safe to say Australians were gutted when England defeated the Matildas 3-1 in the World Cup semi-final last night.
The match at Sydney Olympic Park was incredibly hard fought and the Aussies left everything out on the field.
Say to say, the rest of the country was on the edge of their seats during the 97-minute game.
The Lionesses piled on the pressure when they scored nine minutes before half time.
The Matildas were desperate to equalise and that moment came in the 63rd minute when Sam Kerr slotted one of the best goals in the tournament.
Everyone thought a penalty showdown was on the cards, however England notched two more goals and booked themselves a spot in the World Cup final.
While we can't turn back time or force FIFA to keep the Matildas in the tournament, some Aussies have decided to do the next... logical thing: they're review bombing London's Big Ben.
Yep, you read that right.
Aussies have taken to Google to take their revenge on the Lionesses by saying some petty rubbish about a giant clock.
"Big Ben more like Small Ben," one person wrote.
Another added: "If I wanted to see a clock, I'd just look at me wrist."
A third said: "Pretty sure this 'Ben' paid the refs to keep those yellow cards away."
Other reviews included 'Got nothing on the Big Matildas', 'Not as big as the Matildas' and 'I got bashed by a bunch of English women out the front'.
Last night's semi-final match between the Matildas and the Lionesses was the most watched TV program in Australia since the ratings system began, with 11.15 million Aussies tuning in.
The huge ratings even surpassed some of the biggest sporting moments in Australian television history, including Lleyton Hewitt’s 2005 Australian Open final loss, the Wallabies’ 2003 Rugby World Cup final loss, and Ash Barty’s 2022 Australian Open victory.
The Lionesses will now face Spain's La Furia Roja in the Women's World Cup final match on Sunday. It's the first time teams from both countries have made it to the finals.
