A potentially tough match against a team we've struggled to beat in the past and we were without Schwarzer, Cahill and Emerton (and Kewell if you care). And we nailed it. A superb performance and a great 3-0 win. Top of the group and virtually guaranteed of progressing to the next stage.

Osieck's decision to leave out Emerton and Kewell looks like a masterstroke now. We played very well without them which is great news. Our depth and qualify is improving. The Socceroos are really making progress under Osieck. Of course, it's early days and Brazil 2014 is a long way away, but it looks very encouraging.
