Yo soccer experts

what does it mean when there is a second set of numbers in brackets for the scoring??

Germany 4:0 b [/b] Australia

The score at halftime in brackets. The Germans were leading 2-0 after the first half.

thank you :cowboy:

FYB a bit more help for sake of when you see scores published sometimes also in especially foreign publications or on websites:

When you see for example 1:2 (1:0) that means at least in Europe the score of the home team:visiting team, or in the case of a neutral site the score following the order of the teams as listed of course.

Often for any given team you'll see listed just the opponent and the scores in this fashion without reference to home or away.
