Australia lost the ball in midfield and it was played quickly forward where the 184 centimetre striker Nicolai Jorgensen beat his markers to flick on to Eriksen.

Gungahlin were on the board first and although Canberra quickly equalised, they could have been reduced to 10 men on 43 minutes. United winger Thomas Muller burst down the right flank and was about to play Antoni Timotheou in on goal when he was brought down from behind by Marko Vrkic.

A solo run, a long-range strike and a hint of generous 10

“It was the first time Henry came to the Keeneland Sales with us, after the success in Australia, and Justify was the first horse we bought as a group in America,” SF Bloodstock’s Tom Ryan said. “We bought him because of Henry. He was adamant that we buy him. He was hip number 50 of a more than 3000 horse sale. “He had failed a couple of vets, but our vet was happy 8

1 June 2018 9:39 PM Socceroos thrash Czech Republic in World Cup warm-up match

The work done in 11 days intensive training is already beginning to bear fruit for van Marwijk's side. They were more compact in defence, structurally disciplined and relentless in their zonal marking. After years playing an aggressive, possession-based attack under Ange Postecoglou, this Socceroos team were clinical on the counter. They are far from the finished 17
