Australia’s coach Tom Rogic insists the Socceroos are feeling disappointed after they didn’t make great progress at the World Cup and leaving Russia without a solitary win.
“We probably had a few chances in the first half that we didn’t capitalize on,” the number 10 said.
“We’re finding it a little bit difficult to score goals and then we concede – it as a great strike – but that was their only attack in the first half and the next half was crucial and they got it. It kind of killed the game off.”
Australia used the same starting XI in all three games, except for the Peru match, with Tomi Juric replacing the injured Andrew Nabbout.
Rogic denied fatigue was an issue for the Socceroos in the humidity of the Fisht Stadium.
“I don’t think so,” the Celtic star said.
“We’re all used to playing a lot of our games for our clubs.”
