For all China's progress economically and their investment in sport overall, their natiinal football team has gone nowhere. They are seriously crap. The Japan result was a big surprise.

Yep. China were shocking this morning. Almost reminiscent of the glory days of Oceania.

Japan lost their opener at this stage of the tournament last time and the went on to top the group

Great result for us against China, goal difference could play a role so nice to get +3 on them. Funny old game though with plenty to like but also a bit to think we defensively could be in trouble against the better sides

Vietnam 0 Australia 1
Now, that was a hard watch. If you like a scrappy 1 nil away win then you would have loved that.

Good to get the win but boy that was an ordinary performance.

I will forgive the guys for the lack of touch, the pitch was atrocious, ill forgive the guys for lacking legs at the end the conditions were tough...………………..BUT that was the biggest primma donna performance I have ever seen from an Australian football team.

-The amount of times Rogic would try and dribble through multiple defenders (that's fine, its the way he plays) but he loses the ball and then continues to run 25m up the park with his head shaking, hands in the air, back turned to the game as if he is a road train and cant stop. Lazy and selfish so he doesn't have to commit to the defensive duties.

-The amount of times Mabil thought a little flick or cross over on a cow paddock was going to work as if he was playing an under 10's side. Was almost like he was trying to play for style points rather goals.

-I couldn't believe the amount of times an Australian would make a 10m pass to a teammate but then just stand there completely flat footed. Golden rule of football is to give and go.....absolute laziness as if they were going to just pass through the Vietnamese defence.

-Don't get me started on the two Centre backs when in possession, the amount of times Soutter thought a little 30m yard dink over the top was going to unlock the defence was ridiculous. Given the ball to your midfielders FFS, no your place on the park. The bloke thought he was Kevin de Bruyne.

We play like that against the Japanese and even the Saudis and we will lose by 3 goals minimum. This is such an ordinary Australian side at the moment and I fear the big games are going to be the reality check.
