This is the sort of performance that has eluded Australia in the past. We were up against a team we should comfortably beat and where, in the past, we have struggled to dominate. However Postecoglou has changed the culture or mindset or something. We completely controlled this match and while Bangladesh may have created a few chances, there was only ever going to be one winner. Indeed the match was almost settled after just eight minutes by which time we lead 2-0. On the half-hour mark it was 4-0. We eased off and won 5-0. An excellent result. A comfortable win at home with a clean sheet and big boost to the goal difference. A tougher match coming up, but let's be delighted with this result.
