I don't get why we are all treating Arzani like this helpless little boy we must all protect and keep longer in the bloody A-League. Mbappe and Christian Pulisic are his age and have been playing at big European clubs for a while. A-League is hopeless, it's time to move on.



Also how exactly does Robbie Kruse keep getting games is beyond comprehension. He shouldn't be anywhere near the bench let alone in the starting XI. He is basically the Soumya Sarkar of the Socceroos at this stage.



Start with Arzani instead of the injured Nabbout and Juric instead of the useless Kruse. Bring in Cahill and Maclaren as subs on the second half.

Replace Kruse with Arzani, and maybe Mile with Massimo Luongo.

Start with juric, unfortunately he is the best we have.

We actually fielded our best ever squad. We had the likes of Mark Schwarzer, Harry Kewell, Tim Cahill to name a few. Many playing for top European clubs.

We were a strong enough team to give big European and South American teams a run for their money with that squad (we beat Japan, tied with Croatia- a game we should have also won).

But how can I forget that Italy cheated with a dive to get a penalty in stoppage time in our Round 2 game.

Massimo Luongo wasn't in great form either. Don't think he's done anything remarkable since the 2015 Asia Cup

But even if we win it would be meaningless if Demark beats/ ties with France, which is also a likely outcome.

But honestly, I think this is a nice side from Australia, good to see we picked up where we left off right after that Asia Cup win, sure our qualification wasn't the smoothest, but this is pretty side from Australia, the future is really bright for the Mid Field trio of Leckie,Rogic and Arzani, Behich(Attacking defender but yea),Mooy and Luongo.

It's a dead rubber game for France. But Denmark won't risk puting their luck on the Socceroos-Peru game, so they'll be more desparate and a tie could be the result of that.


Being realistic, we are going out of the WC to Peru tonight anyway. Might as well sub in Cahill on the second half to give him his proper farewell.

You are being really pessimistic :)
Come on other than the golden generation and bar Kruse and Juric, this is one of the best squads we have sported.


They drew with the Germans 2-2,Colombians 0-0 and Chileans 1-1, not to mention some wins against Hungary,Czech Republic and co.

Also the Peru goal should have been called off-side. Iran's goal was not allowed for similar margins.

Instead we get the likes of Shamim Ashraf Chowdhury- in a BPL game he spotted his sister in law and apparently said on live TV "There.. That is my shali". :facepalm:

Of course that is still second worst to Athar Ali Khan's "You little beauty". We really need to get a brutally honest analyst for Bangladesh from Australia/ England.

My hands are sweaty just thinking about the Argentina Nigeria game, I am a neutral. But I do want Messi to succeed because I know the media will crucify him if he doesn't.

And I think he realized he needs to do it all, starting from midfield. If he's not getting the ball in his feet, then Nigeria is winning. Messi needs to score a hattrick to shut out Nigeria. Because Nigeria is easily capable of putting past 2 against Argentina's poor defense.

Cahill-Arzani lead our attack and created more chances in 30 minutes than what Kruse-Juric did in 3 matches. Shame Bert was blind to this. But we were pitted against World #7, #11 and #12. This was the most likely outcome.

If we can't score a single goal from open play- a feat accomplished by all other teams this World Cup barring Costa Rica, we do not deserve to go to Round 2. We can only hope that Arzani finds a big club where he could develop, and Cahill will be missed.

They will meet France in super 16. If Arg do not fix their rookie mistakes and doesnt work on Defense, that will be it for them. Mascherano got old and it is evident.

I am glad that Messi didnt perform too well but Arg still managed to win. This should and hopefully will make them more confident.
