I'm disappointed. This was like watching the Roar play the semi final. Open goals missed then one goal finishes it off.
Some players played like they had already started the end of year celebrations. Kuwait didn't. For part-timers they were all over us. For most of the game they were the better team, closing down the Socceroos all over the park.
Kuwaits back line was very solid. Australia's was shakey. The goal came from poor defending from a free kick. A number of Australians had stage fright and didn't play their game well. Poor passing and missed tackles were evident. Realistically we were lucky not to concede more goals - the post saved us.
Archie Thompson. We think you are great. But what were you doing?
Matt Simon - I thought was the best player in the first half of the A-League this year - at this level looks out of his depth.
