I am amused.

In the final day of group games in the soccer World Cup, France played a game against Togo. According to Australia's Channel 9, however, this was not the case. Below is the actual match-up as per their nightly news, complete with scoreline:

France 2 - 0 Toga

Clearly, someone needs to employ a more competent and geographically intelligent proofreader. This is why I normally watch SBS's news and only ever 'watch' Channel 9 when channel-surfing. On second thoughts, maybe I should reconsider and watch Channel 9 purely for the amusement factor!
