Socceroos' World Cup dream ends in Sochi

"A World Cup doesn't come around very often, so the chance to share something like this with them was a no-brainer", Ryan, 26, said.

Scoring hasn't been easy for Australia at World Cups recently, with its last three goals in the tournament coming from penalty kicks, including two from captain Mile Jedinak in Russian Federation.

"And we played in the same level and I think sometimes even a little bit higher (than opponents) so that means that you can reach a lot when you work very well".

"We had total control of the Denmark game and that's what makes it hard to take in".

Denmark could have only been denied qualification had they lost to France and had Australia beaten Peru in the match being simultaneously played in Sochi. The last time the Peruvians tasted victory at the tournament was when they beat Iran 4-1 at the 1978 World Cup.

Australia need France to beat Denmark, however Behich said all the focus was on Peru.

Portugal player ratings versus Iran
Had Taremi scored, Iran would have vaulted both Spain and Portugal for top spot in the quartet, with the latter falling to third. The referee is a very lucky guy. "If Iran score at the end it would have been absolute chaos", Shearer told BBC One .

And judging from the comments on the video on the star's page, plenty of fans want to see the striker get an opportunity to show more of his magic on the big stage.

FW Nabil Fekir, 7 - Along with Kimpembe, he was the best French performer after coming on to replace the ghostly Griezmann, producing two shots on goal - almost more than the rest of the team put together.

Australia suffer a 2-0 defeat to Peru in their final match at the 2018 World Cup, with both teams exiting the competition.

"We don't have luck in all three games", he said.

However, Jorge Sampaoli's side have looked poor throughout the tournament and were thrashed 3-0 by Croatia on Thursday.

Australia boss Bert van Marwijk made just the one change to the team that started against Denmark last time out, and that came in attack as Tomi Juric replaced the injured Andrew Nabbout. Hopefully they have earned something, you can learn from good and bad things.
