Australia, which is ranked 25th in the FIFA rankings, had a hard time in Syria’s counterattack tactics. Both teams failed to record even one effective shot throughout the entire match, displaying poor performance.
Syria lost a decisive scoring opportunity in the 5th minute of the first half when Pablo Sabag’s left-footed shot hit the Australian right post. In the 39th minute of the first half, it was regrettable that Amar Ramadan’s shot was inserted into the net next to the left post.
Australia dominated the first half of the ball possession with 71% (29% in Syria), but both teams were sluggish with zero effective shots.
Australia brought the mood by scoring its first shot on goal at the 14th minute of the second half. With the goal mixed, Irvine caught the ball in front of the goal area and opened the goal for Syria, which had been tightly closed with a right foot shot. It was the winning goal.
