Well pretty sad reading result-wise so far.


Five Nations Series 3 May 2015 New Zealand 2–3 Australia Auckland, New Zealand
Five Nations Series 7 May 2015 Qatar 4–1 Australia Auckland, New Zealand
Five Nations Series 10 May 2015 Panama 6–1 Australia Hamilton, New Zealand

Last game
Five Nations Series 13 May 2015 Ghana v Australia Hamilton, New Zealand

Even sadder is Okon's comments after the Qatar game.
Australia U-20 coach Paul Okon said he was satisfied with the performance of his team against a side he believes could make a big impact at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Considering the squad chosen I wouldn't read too much into the results. Hopefully this is a bit of a wake up call to FFA that they can't just pick a basically East Coast select side.

BTW the side lost their last game Wednesday to Ghana 2-0.

Mauk was the scorer.

Okon is a shit coach. Has his position solely because of his name.

U20's let a two goal lead slip against Mexico and the game ended 2-2.

They play Brazil on the 27th.

With the quality of players available to the U20s the results they are getting under Okon are deplorable.

Yeah that's why there has been a turn around in results. The squad that lost 6-1 to Panama was far different to the squad that played the last two matches. Which begs the question why pick such a weak squad originally?

I'm not sure exactly but I'd like to see Ange involved in the selection process. If the U20 coach and the seniors coach are on the same wave length surely that's a good thing.

A 10-man Young Socceroos proved capable of competing with the world's best emerging talent, narrowly going down 1-0 to Brazil's U20 side in Wollongong on Wednesday night.

Much improved results against side that should do well in the U20 WC. Makes you wonder why Australia aren't there.
Young Socceroos starting XI: Glover(gk)(Holmes), Alessi, Burgess, Rose(Mauk), Youlley(Arzani), Blackwood(Sotirio), De Silva, Borrello, Kuzmanovski (Naumoff), Deng, Woodcock(Gersbach)

Exclusive: Paul Okon is taking a different approach to preparing for a key event next month, as he seeks to make up for recent disappointments

Yeah lets just pull out of tournaments willy nilly and see how that effects our place in Asia.
