Soccerros’ fans have been bragging this morning after the network’s ten live streams stalled in the middle of a penalty shoot-out.
Australia beat Peru 5-4 in the wild in Doha on Tuesday morning to advance to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Socrates followed after a free kick by Martin Boyle. However, Aaron Mui, Craig Goodwin, Ajdin Herost, Jamie McLaren, and Awer Mabil all left.
Goalkeeper Andy Redmond saved Australia with two balls to send them to the World Cup.
But online viewers missed a crucial moment in the shooting because of a possible technical glitch.
With Australia winning 4-3, Peruvian Edison Flores went on to take the ball and the fans held their breath and wanted to keep the South Americans alive.
But as he got closer to the ball, the screen cooled for a few seconds and continued to shoot until it hit the net.
One spectator wrote on Twitter: “Imagine Peru missing that 5th pen and we all miss it because the stream stopped for everyone.”
“Wow !! My stream is left for the final punishment !!!” There is another.
The third wrote, “Before the Pen WTF Channel 10, my stream cooled down.”
“What a cool time that was! Someone else? #AUSvsPER “Fourth added.

Analysts point out Redhamine was caught red-handed as the flow continued.
Then the shooting went into a crucial sixth round – and the rest was history.
The Socceroos players rushed to celebrate with Redmond after the victory – and there were tears of joy in the rooms.
Redmond’s time is coming down in Australian sports history – and coach Graham Arnold’s decision to bomb Captain Matt Ryan is to roll over the dice at the last minute.
“There was a lot of pressure on the coach,” said Soccerros’ senior Andy Harper.
“Coach questions. A queue of people waiting to take a baseball bat to the coach. And Redmond won the team, the campaign and now Australia have reached the fifth consecutive World Cup.
Australia face France, Denmark and Tunisia in Group D of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on November 21.
