If they were serious about winning the thing why did they do something as stupid as making 8 changes?


B)
Would have to be resting players due to the short turnaround and also with the SK game in mind.

Regardless of the changes, we should have won comfortably.
Fair enough, but it does come across as careless to me.
I seems smarter to qualify and then rest players but what do i know... :D

"I don't know where we get the expectation of easy games and just thinking that we're going to win these games at youth level," Milicic told AAP from China.
"(The Vietnam team has) been together for a long time and a few years back, that same group played against Australia and won 5-1.


After reading these quotes I am even more perplexed as to why he still made 8 changes to the team.

KOR 2-0 AUS

Half time.

I think the plan is not working.

KOR 3 - AUS 1

Australia dominate the second half.
Chance after chance after chance.
Korea have one chance at the 65min and they score.


As I write Australia hit the cross bar...


Was this the arrangement?
National team blows it and the players go back to their clubs after three games?

Should I put my tinfoil hat on?

:mrgreen:

As I continue to ponder this post Australia get one back.

I watched till HT then fell asleep. I'm proud the lads fought back. It was a tough group for them and they certainly showed they weren't outclassed much of the tournament.

Hopefully this places the side in good stead for the Olympic qualifiers which are the games that really matter!
