Australia ended up losing 8-0 to South Korea this morning, so there is no chance that they can advance now.
The Netherlands will take on South Korea at 10:30pm tonight, a win and I think they will lock up the second spot behind Japan. I'm not entirely sure what the tiebreaker is. Right now, both South Korea and The Netherlands are 1-1 with one game left to play. If the tiebreaker is based on head to head, then the Netherlands should go because they beat South Korea 5-0. If it's on run differential though, South Korea is currently at +1 while The Netherlands are at 0.

Tough tournament for the Barry Larking coached Brazil team. They were so close to beating Japan in the first game, only to lose all three of their games, including a 5-2 loss this morning to a China squad that was considered the weakest team in the field.
