A friendly match - or is there no such thing between Australia and England - involving two experimental sides put on a pretty good show for the fans. England had an early goal and a superb strike from Rooney to set them on the path to victory. Australia dominated possession and the duels but could not make it count. A late own goal gave us some hope but we ended up losing. The difference on the day - the quality of finishing. Lots of positives for Australia but we need to find ways to score aginst good teams.
