Australia’s player 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.
Australia came unstuck in the Sochi heat, falling to Peru 2-0 today.
The Socceroos suffered two losses at the tournament, claiming just one point from a draw with Denmark, meaning an early exit and a bottom-place finish in Group C.
But Rogic, playing in his first World Cup, believes the national team can take a lot from the experience and has improved.
“It’s been a great experience, it’s great to be here,” he said in Sochi via FourFourTwo.
“The feeling right now is disappointment. I thought we’ve made great progress as a team, ultimately our goal was to progress to the next round and we weren’t able to do that. I’m sure we’ll all learn from it, we’ll be better from the experience.
“It’s been great to work with the management and stuff, it feels like they added to what we had built on and they took us a bit further. Unfortunately, we just fell short at the end. I enjoyed working with Bert, he’s a good person. He has great experience.”
