On 18 June 2014, Australia played the Netherlands in their second FIFA World Cup Group B match, which ended 3-2 in favour of the Dutch. Late in the match and a goal down, Australian forward Mathew Leckie tried to win a penalty-kick. Dutch defender Ron Vlaar was not impressed by Leckie's attempt to deceive the referee. Vlaar confronted Leckie with the Australian visibly and verbally objecting to the Dutchman's claim of a dive.
Subsequent replays appeared to show Leckie responding to Vlaar, saying, "F***ing fight me, c***." The vision was picked-up across social media and typically gathered momentum. However, Leckie most likely responded by saying, "It was a foul. It was a foul, you big c***." Nevertheless, Australian fans lapped it up and it is now part of football folklore.
