Crap finish to the half. We've been the better side.

The soccer is dull. Seriously it must be an ordinary qualifying group or Aussie soccer has regressed. The style of football is boring and we don't have any goal scoring ability and can't hold the ball. I don't know how this game can compete with the NRL in Australia.

Garbage second half. Japan were just toying.

Glad to see you guys who follow soccer thought that game was boring lol...I find it near impossible to tell the difference between a good and bad game.

Is Australia now stuffed for WC?

Disappointing game. No one stood up. Midfield got dominated. Better options surely then Brad Smith.
If Juric was injured why wasn't he removed from the squad and replaced? No other strikers available?
Looks like we will need to rely on Japan to beat Saudi Arabia, and not get a big ego when we play Thailand.

No not yet, top two from the group go through, currently Japan and Saudi Arabia, though the Saudi's are on the same points as us but with a better F/A. We should beat Thailand, and hopefully Japan turn up and beat the Saudi's though as Japan have qualified they may not be that focused. There is still a playoff phase if we finish third in the group, we get thrown in with a bunch of other teams and play off for one of the remaining spots. Lets hope Japan win and we beat Thailand on Tuesday.

That was an utterly atrocious performance. We've got a poor squad but Ange's tactics are mind mindbogglingly poor. Highlights our weaknesses and is totally predictable. We simply don't have the players to play the way Ange wants us to, but he's too stubborn to change his tactics to better suit the players he has.

Your comments remind me of the moron who was coaching WT at the start of the year

Based on that performance even if they qualify for the WC they will just be making up the numbers. That was pathetic.
