Very inexperienced squad.

The result doesn't mean much but it's a great opportunity for a lot of these younger guys in particular. Not expecting a full strength Argentina but regardless it's going to have a number of WC winners and testing yourself against that sort of quality is worth its weight in gold.

Really keen to see Circarti in particular. What a great result that is to have him commit to us rather than Italy, hopefully there are a few more similar stories to come in the not too distant future. Says a lot about the national side and the direction in which it is heading.

I would hope he moves this transfer window...
Glover is another one I'd hope gets a transfer

Glover has gone to Europe. City announced a few days ago that he and O'Neil were heading overseas but I don't think we know yet where Glover is going.
 
Socceroos parked the bus against Argentina in WC. In friendly game they can attack more. In 90th minute they will follow Messi to get his shirt!

I know Duke had an ok WC but surely for us to grow we gotta be trialling someone other than him or mclaren for that matter .. in friendlies..
Bit hard when olyroos and U-18s are also playing at the same time . Hopefully some youngsters will emerge and force their way in
 
Interesting line up. Limited options up front, but its broken a few times for us where we haven't been able to capitalise as we haven't been super clean, or goals at the WC came of pushing the paved and striking on sight regret than trim b to created a better chance
 
We actually dominated that half - until we got to their 16 yard box. There's no way we should be down here.
 
Aside from a few cluck ups, including the first goal, we've been pretty comfortable. Bos is getting off the chain (clearly have done the scouting on him and his desire to turn inside) and Duke was unlock got to score.

We've come along way in a short time under arnold. Normally we'd be overwhelmed against a superior opponent, but I qatar and here we look capable
 
Our lack of a class striker stands out . Still feels like Argentina can turn it on if they want to , but now just content to go at 75%.
