The COVID-19 epidemic meant no football for about a year-and-a-half. Further, this group of four games are being played in a hub in Kuwait - a tough re-introduction to test football. That said, the Socceroos were off to a flyer with Leckie scoring in the first minute. They never looked back and finished comfortable 3-0 winners.
