Arzani scores as Socceroos scrape by Hungary in final warm-up

Arzani scores as Socceroos scrape by Hungary in final warm-up

The result continues Australia's momentum on the road to Russian Federation, where tournament heavyweights France await on June 16.

The Dutch tactician told the Sydney Morning Herald spending his own funds form his very own bank account to help Australia progress past the group stage of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

It came about from a well-worked move by the Socceroos as they played the ball out from defence and patiently but deliberately worked the play from right to left.

However, Hull City's Irvine felt it was a match the Socceroos would have let slip in times past. "We won, but I already told my players I wasn't satisfied".

"Second half was better and we took control".

'It shows the experience that we've gathered as a team and I think as we've grown together, we're finding ways to win games when things aren't going particularly smoothly out there, and tonight was probably the flawless example of that'.

As Hungary were set to salvage a draw, Irvine chased down a long ball in the 92nd minute to produce another defensive kerfuffle.

The biggest positive for Australia was 19-year-old Daniel Arzani, who scored just 67 seconds after he was introduced as a substitute in the 73rd minute.

The Socceroos, heading to their fourth World Cup in Russian Federation next week, raised their game in the second half and took the lead in fortuitous circumstances.

"Heading into such a massive tournament it's important to be getting wins going into it and just to get the confidence of the boys up".

But this current Australia crop would only seriously begin to impress home fans if they managed to qualify from a Group C also featuring Denmark and Peru.

Receiving possession by the touchline, the Melbourne City man played an incisive 40-yard pass to release Irvine, whose low cross was poked by Tamas Kadar through his Dibusz's legs for another comical own-goal. I'm absolutely buzzing, I can't wait'.
