Back on home soil and building for the Asian Cup, the Socceroos were full of intent but lacked composure in front of goal. This is a familiar story that needs to be resolved. Arnold has brought in some new players and has a squad that could really do something if only we were more deadly in front of goal. Contrast us with South Korea who had few chances, took one extremely well and were denied a second (albeit from a free kick) by a wonderful save from Matt Ryan. On the whole, given that it was a friendly, we should be happy with the display. However we must learn to score goals against the quality teams if we're going to do well at the Asian Cup.
