Aaron Mooy scores on Socceroo Debut


Aaron Mooy was selected in the starting line up for the Socceroos match vs Guam.

He then proceeded to score his first ever international goal, his second in a senior competitive match with a well taken free kick.

In the 54th minute he unleashed a perfect through-ball that enabled Eli Babalj to make the score 4-0 in favour of Australia.

The goal and assist is justification for those confused and angry at Mooy being left on the bench for the opening two matches against Hong Kong and North Korea, and will be further fuel to his elevation to the full national team setup.

Mooy hit the post on another free kick, then missed two golden chances. The first had a Guam defender just knock the ball from his feet as he was about to strike, the second was a chip cleared off the line when Mooy perhaps should have blasted it home.

Despite the missed chances Australia won the match 9-0 and Mooy was arguably the man of the match. This puts them in a good position to qualify, the group will end in a goal difference shootout, as long as Australia who play Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) can better the result of North Korea who play Hong Kong.

He changes it up and look what happens, even though its against a lesser opponent the young boys are playing some good football. Mooy free kick was awesome and came close with another one. Hopefully we can score a few more in the second half.

Was a cracking strike, know he needs to it for wanderers!!

Mooy didn't shoot wide, the defender poked it away from behind him through Mooy's legs.

 

Made me happy to see the interplay between Rogic and Mooy. Both have been fantastic in this game.

would be good to get one more, that way top of the table.

Mooys shot cleared off the line, should have had a hatrick

Its now 9-0 c'mon a couple more

so close.

9-0 FT

9-0. should have been more.

but at least we closed the goal difference.

Mooy missed another sitter.  He is certainly not the answer to our goal scoring woes.
