Maybe we could play England to get a real confidence boost?

True, but Qatar is more of a test

I thought Ange lost it because the reporter asked him how he felt coming into his sixth game in a row without a win?

The way we are going we will slip out of the top 100 rankings pretty soon.

As far as friendlies go, this was a good fast game, especially the first half before the rythm of the game was spoilt in the 2nd half with the usual procession of multiple subs.

Leckie was fast, setting up a superb cutback which Tim Cahill should have put away.

Belgium's speed was incredible & Jedinak in particular had to give away many fouls to try to stem the tide.

The one real disappointment again was Oar. Couldn't beat his fullback, hit row Z with a shot & kicked a corner out of play. Ange took ages to sub him.

Dunno who the answer is at left midfield to complement Davidson's overlapping. And Ange still experimenting at the centre-back & right back positions. Bresciano irreplaceable as the creative midfielder for our home Asian Cup campaign.

Your right about Oar, which is strange why Ange keeps playing on the wing IMO he looks so much better playing centrally and generally that's where he plays his club football. I disagree the Bresc is irreplaceable Oar is good there and Bozanic was great in the WC there as well. He certainly is great there and important to have in the squad but I would rather see Ange give Oar, Loungo and Bozanic game time in front of Bresc in the next friendlies.

Luongo looked like he had something. I like Sainsbury too. He plays with confidence and will get better. Leckie is crazy fast which is an asset.

Maybe play Kruse on the left and leckie on the right. Halloran looked ok too.

Milligan also has a lot of very good moments.

Looking forward to seeing more of certain guys. Shame about Antonis. Kind of surprised that ange doesn't rate brattan enough to put him in the squad.

Yeah true. I'd have Brattan in the mix. Obviously he'd be behind Milligan and Jednak but still.
