The green and gold will head to Russia on the back of consecutive wins

It took two moments of brilliance from Australian young gun Daniel Arzani, but the Socceroos have secured a 2-1 win over Hungary in Budapest.

Fielding an unchanged starting 11 from their recent win over Czech Republic, Bert van Marwijk's side struggled in the first 45 minutes with Hungary going the closest to opening the scoring.

A trio of changes after the break including the introduction of Mile Jedinak, gave Australia more authority but it wasn't until the introduction of teenager Daniel Arzani that the deadlock was broken.

The 19-year-old backed himself from distance and caught the keeper napping to hand the Socceroos the lead with less than 20 minutes to go.

A moment to forget for Trent Sainsbury and Brad Jones at the back however saw Hungary pull level in comical circumstances with Arzani again needed to secure Australia the win.

Set to be the youngest player at the World Cup, Arzani laid a brilliant pass through for Jackson Irvine, whose cross into the box was put into the net by a helpless Hungary defender.

Far from convincing for the Socceroos, but a result that will give them hope ahead of a World Cup opener against France on June 16.
