On Japan's World Cup defeat

I have a theory.
Japan approached Australia at the early stages, saying that they're pretty confident of winning their first match.
Nevertheless they are still willing to consider 'not performing as well' if Australia would pay a healthy sum (shit loads) of money.
Of course, the Australians laughed their heads off.
And then just now, Japan actually took the lead. That's when Australia went: Oh shit. Shit. Shit. Erm. Let's pay the money.
Of course, since it's not 'clean' money. They need to use internet transaction. Untraceble stuff, you know, like student accounts.
You can just use dummy names and cancel them later, claiming that you've 'returned home'. The catch is, student accounts have $5000 limit for each transaction everyday.
So say the Japanese goverment demanded $10 billion. It'll take just about 80 minutes for 20 million Australians to log on and transfer $5000 over to the country of the rising sun.
Yea, so the $10 billion dollar got wired. They sent a signal to the referee, and he gave the Japanese captain a nod.
Hence the whole Japanese team decided to watch Australians play soccer and let them score 3 goals in 10 minutes.

Or maybe, the Japs are just too tired by the end.
