The Socceroos are soaring once again after sustaining their flawless World Cup qualifiers streak after beating Oman 3-1 in Qatar.
Awer Mabil gave Australia the lead in the ninth minute, kicking of the first of the three goals, but Oman came firing back in the 28th minute thanks to Al Manfhar Al Alaw.
The Socceroos were determined to come out with a win in the second half, and Martin Boyle delivered for the Aussies, scoring just four minutes in after Adam Taggart’s initial shot was saved.
Oman lost their first half pace allowing the boys in green and gold to put the final nail in the coffin. Mitchell Duke came in the final minute of the match, to solidify Australia’s win 3-1.
The win has put the Socceroos at the top of their group and are also the first team to win 11 consecutive matches in a single World Cup qualification campaign.
Australia will take on Japan next on Tuesday.
