Commentary

90' + 3' FULL TIME - A rather forgetful night for the Socceroos, who went into half time, full of hope at 1-1. They had a horror second half, conceding three goals in the second half (Reginiussen 48 and Kamara 57, 91). Not an ideal preparation for the Russia bound Socceroos, but it may be a lesson they needed to learn.
