It was a game we probably should have won and it was a game we needed to win. Unfortunately, the best we could manage was a 1-1 draw. It was chilly and the pitch was poor, but both teams played under the same conditions and the Socceroos couldn't rise to the occasion. A little worrying. Especially when you consider that both Japan and Saudi Arabia won their corresponding fixtures.
