As HS said, the team will probably qualify now due to the scheduling.
However, i wanted them not to qualify, simply because as long as we qualify for WC's no changes will be made to the structure of Australian football and we will continue to rely on 35 year olds that play in the UAE etc.
Believe it or not, the youth of today look very different to me than they did 15, even 5 years ago. There is a more technical generation being developed right now, I just hope their talent sees the light of day.
From the match, I saw the highlights and it looks like Australia created a lot of chances and was unlucky to go 0-1 down.
The youngsters are getting more and more technical but are they getting a chance? Not in the Socceroos they arnt at least. We have "experienced" players like David Carney and Carl Valeri who are useless taking up spots for no reason.
Yeah, Australia were much better from the looks of things and deserved the win. Lets just hope they continue to play like this in every away match, not just at home. Btw i feel sorry for Iraq that they can't play in their own country so technically this wasnt a home game for them.

Adelaide have started the season slow which doesn't surprise me given how many players they've lost in the off season : James Jeggo to Sturm Graz [btw he's doing very well in Austria, starting regularly, his club no 1 in Austria], Stefan Mauk to NEC...
