AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023

Post by eagleboy »

I thought an uninspiring win against India last night. Australia absolutely dominated but totally had no idea how to score.


Australia 2-0 India

This shouldn't be surprising, they have no players of quality. The only thing Australia is good at is parking the bus against stronger teams but when it comes to playing the likes of India they are playing a team near their own level and are unable to do anything with possession.

anyone watching the Raq V Japan game? :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Technically, we are so far behind these teams.....as long as we have a team assembled in Arnie's image, we'll be fine.... :crazy:

i think our campaign will come to an end next round, I am glad he started Bruno but Graham has his favourites and that is all there is too it, after the WC i was excited for this tournament but after watching the first 4 games the excitement is gone, to be honest it was gone after the India game :cry:

48 hours more rest than the winner of the South Korea/Saudi Arabia game might help Straya 🇦🇺

These two countries 🇰🇷 and 🇸🇦 might really rip into each and cop yellow & red cards. Might even cop some injuries too in this do-or-die game.

We play South Korea after they won on penalties. Will be tough. I suspect we will make the final if we win this.

Iran v Japan on the 3rd could be the toughest match of the tournament. In the round of 8. The winner should have an easy ride to the final.

No one is happy with the loss except maybe ZZZ.

What pissed me off was that stupid penalty. WTF was the defender doing going for a crazy 50-50 tackle with 3 minutes left.

You say that like it isn't something Socceroos have done in the past.

Arnold still needs to go, he is useless.
If only they didnt boot Ange ( the only Ozzie coach to actually win something with the Ozzie team)

Didn't Ange quit to coach in Japan. $$$$
I'm not an Arnie fan but he hasn't done badly as current coach.
