Aussie depth exposed - but we won!

Australia beat 142 ranked India 4-0 in the Asian Cup opener.

A rusty Asutralia relied on the old fellas, Tim Cahill (2), Harry Kewell (1), and Brett Emerton to create and score most of our goals. Brett Holman scored the other.

A comfortable win amd one which sets us up for the massive game with Korea on Friday.

Australia still look clumsy and slow in their ball movement under Holger Osiek and will surely be exposed in our defensive third against the fluid and technically superior Koreans.

But Australia's first true test since the World Cup should be a great game. Can't see us dominating possession after last night so could be in for a very nervous 90.

Let's hope no-one gets sent off and Mr Scharwzer is up for it.

And if you like the ball high and often into the box Holger is looking like your man.
