Craig Goodwin‘s remarkable return to the pitch proved instrumental as the Socceroos secured a resounding 5-0 victory over Lebanon in Canberra, propelling them into the next round of World Cup qualifiers.

The night began with Goodwin’s impactful performance, setting up Kusini Yengi for an early goal with a precise cross, setting the tone for the Socceroos.

In the second half, Goodwin continued to shine, delivering a free-kick that led to an own goal by Bassel Jradi, before unleashing a spectacular shot from the edge of the box for a memorable goal.

Graham Arnold‘s strategic substitutions, including debutants Patrick Yazbek and Josh Nisbet, further strengthened the Socceroos’ dominance on the field.

Despite their commanding performance, the Socceroos faced a setback with another injury to playmaker Ajdin Hrustic, who had to be assisted off the field.

John Iredale also made a memorable impact, scoring within minutes of coming on, a significant moment that reflected the depth of talent within the Socceroos’ squad.

The sold-out crowd at GIO Stadium witnessed a dominant display by the Socceroos, who have now kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 matches, showcasing their defensive solidity.

Australia’s 5-0 victory against Lebanon confirms their place in the final round of World Cup qualifiers, marking a significant step in their journey towards the FIFA World Cup.
