Any word on where its being played? Seeing conflicting articles.

I actually like the idea of us playing as much as possible in Qatar. Should we qualify the place could be very homely for us.

I saw an announcement saying they were trying to get these games into Sydney but I don't see how they could realistically do this given the rona outbreak there.

Qatar was mentioned however the FFA have the match location as TBC. Surely it's too late in the day to have it anywhere other than Qatar.

I'd rather Qatar. I'd hate to see any of the squad held up and can't take part. Or held up leaving and jeopardising their spot with their club.

Looks like it may be in Australia. Can't say I'm pleased as the risk of it all going to s*&t at the 11th hour is very high.

Squad is in for the upcoming fixtures and there is nothing dramatic. A couple of players switched, mainly due to injury than anything. Happy to see Karacic back, also nice that Arzani has actually played some club football.

Excellent performance. Excellent result. It goes without saying (or should) that our heart and effort were excellent, but I thought our technical ability was superb as well, across all positions. I thought we looked dangerous in attack as well as solid in defence. Bring on Japan!

I thought we were a bit slow across the back, however looked better when Karacic came on for Grant. He should start against Japan.

Is it just me or is it amazing that we've only lost 8 competitive games since the 2014 WC. Germany and France are 2 sides that have beat us as well.
Its pretty amazing what Ange created and Arnie is now continuing.

Bring on Japan hopefully their woes continue but I'd be overjoyed with a draw to keep them 6 points away from us. Then fingers crossed we'll be able to welcome the Saudi's to our shores for next round.

Pretty unlucky to come away with nothing. A draw would have been a fair result IMO. I think the only area of disappointment is the lack of fitness we're been able to get into Mooy. I think a fully fit Mooy could have been the difference. I wonder why he wasn't given more game time against Oman to build up to Japan?

Hopefully things stay on track from a COVID perspective here in Oz and we're able to host the Saudi's here. That will be a massive boost.

Agree that I think we were worth a point. But I do think we played Japan back into form.

Arnie's mind set is like Ange, go out for the 3 points every game. But it seemed to me that the players were playing within themselves (not playing for a draw as such, but happy for it to be a draw).
I thought we were slower moving the ball at the back (no urgency), keeper deliberately slow from early on, midfield not pressing as hard as usual, wide defenders didn't push as far down the line as usual.
