There have been many Australian sides that have struggled against weak teams. Postecoglou's Socceroos are not one of them. This match was a complete and utter domination by any measure. The Socceroos boosted their goal difference with the 7-0 win and could have (should have) had many more, hitting the woodwork on several occasions. Tajikistan managed just a single shot to the Socceroos' 38 - which gives some indication of how one-sided this match was. An extremely positive night. We got the win we needed, a huge confidence boost and are all set for Jordan.
