Check out Goal's ratings for every Australian player below. 

  • Maty Ryan Socceroos

    Mat Ryan

    Rating: 7/10

    Wasn't much for the Brighton and Hove Albion man to do during the 90 minutes but made a save or two when called and was always in the right position.

  • Rhyan Grant Socceroos

    Rhyan Grant

    Rating: 6/10

    Put in a solid shift down the right but would have liked to have threatened more going forward.

    Risdon should have the position nailed down for the Jordan match.


  • Milos Degenek

    Milos Degenek

    Rating: 8/10

    Delightful finish for the fourth goal from Chris Ikonomidis' corner.

    Was solid at the back also.

    Could get a start against Jordan if Mark Milligan is deployed in midfield.

  • Trent Sainsbury Socceroos

    Trent Sainsbury

    Rating: 6/10

    Made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes but recovered to put in a decent performance.

    A bit of a worry ahead of the Asian Cup.

  • Aziz Behich Socceroos

    Aziz Behich

    Rating: 8/10

    Got an assist for Awer Mabil's goal and threatened constantly down the left hand side.

    Has the left-back role locked down.

  • Mark Milligan Socceroos

    Mark Milligan

    Rating: 8/10

    Put in a superb shift in midfield.

    Constantly dropped between the centre backs and distrubuted the ball well.

    Will be interesting to see where he starts against Jordan - midfield or defence.

  • Mustafa Amini Socceroos

    Mustafa Amini

    Rating: 7/10

    Performed solidly in a deeper midfield role.

    Had a large part to play in Ikonomidis' goal but didn't do enough to get a starting position.

  • Chris Ikonomidis England v Australia Friendly 27052016

    Chris Ikonomidis

    Rating: 9/10 

    Scored and assisted in a superb return to the Socceroos fold.

    Looked dangerous and he finish was absolutely excellent.

    Will come into starting consideration if Mathew Leckie is absent.

  • Awer Mabil Socceroos

    Awer Mabil

    Rating: 8/10

    Got another Socceroos goal and looked lively from the start in a widespread attacking role.

    Will be a dangerous option off the bench during the Asian Cup.

  • Robbie Kruse Australia

    Robbie Kruse

    Rating: 5/10

    Australia's most ineffective player in a match where most attacking players thrived.

    Must be slipping down the pecking order for a starting spot.

  • Andrew Nabbout Socceroos

    Andrew Nabbout

    Rating: 8/10

    Although it was presented on a platter, he took his goal nicely.

    Worked hard with the forward press.

    Do you start with him or Jamie Maclaren up top against Jordan?

  • Substitutes

    Jamie Maclaren: 6/10

    Really needed a goal but didn't snare one. Could be under threat by Nabbout for the starting striker position.

    Massimo Luongo: 7/10

    Looked calm and composed in midfield. Will start against Jordan.

    Jackson Irvine: 8/10

    Brilliantly took his goal and will be a great option off the bench to play in either attacking or defensive midfield roles.

    Martin Boyle: 6/10

    Was a constant threat when he came on to the field. Was always looking to run at the Omani defence.

    Matthew Jurman: N/A

    Alex Gersbach: N/A
