‘We knew we would beat Vietnam’: Australia assistant coach


Rene Meulesteen said the big win against Vietnam in the World Cup qualifier on Thursday has shown the superior quality of Australia.

“Australia had a great game. We knew that we would beat Vietnam. The quality of the team is much better than the opponent and we turned that into a specific result,” Meulesteen said in the post-match conference.

On home ground, Australia edged out Vietnam with 61 percent of possession, had 17 shots compared to Vietnam’s eight and scored two goals in each half of the game.

Meulesteen coached Australia in this game after their head coach Arnold Graham got Covid-19. He completed the job, which is helping Australia to secure three points to keep up with Saudi Arabia and Japan in the group.

In the first leg, when Vietnam got to play at home, Australia only won 1-0.

“The first leg took place in Vietnam and we had trouble with the humid weather and the pitch quality. In the second leg, we played in our home ground. The team created many chances to score. It’s been a long time that we got to play with the support of the home fans,” Meulesteen said.

Tom Rogic was chosen as man of the match. He assisted the first goal before scoring the second himself.

“Rogic deserves to be man of the match. He had great positioning, ball control and finishing.”

In the next game, Australia will play Oman, while Vietnam take on China on February 1.
