Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk far from content after Czech Republic win with squad 90% certain

Socceroos Bert van Marwijk
The green and gold coach won't be letting this win go to his players' heads

Despite overseeing his first win as Socceroos coach in a 4-0 victory over Czech Republic, Bert van Marwijk wasn't getting carried away with the result.

The Dutchman must cut four players from his squad in the coming days and revealed after the game he's 90 percent sure of the players he'll pick for Russia.

A number of players impressed in the win, with Mathew Leckie grabbing a double, and young gun Daniel Arzani given his first taste of international football off the bench.

Though the scoreline was a flattering one for Australia, van Marwijk stressed they all must remain grounded ahead of a World Cup opener against France on June 16.

"Results are important for the players," van Marwijk told Fox Sports post-game.  

"Sometimes we did it right in way...sometimes we didn’t especially in the beginning of the first half.

"You must never be content, I’m never really content. 

"We saw the progress in the team, they improved, you can be satisfied, but you must not be too satisfied."

Andrew Nabbout Socceroos

Of those that can be somewhat satisfied, striker Andrew Nabbout can hold his head high after grabbing his first goal for the Socceroos despite a patchy first half. 

Nabbout started at number nine as Tomi Juric recovers from a knee injury with Jamie Maclaren replacing Nabbout after an hour.

Though struggling up top in the first 45 minutes, Nabbout never stopped running and was rewarded with a well-taken strike that van Marwijk certainly took notice off. 

"For him he’s working so hard and I think for players like that they need it," van Marwijk said.

"So I’m very happy he scored."
