No. All this win does is mask Australia’s problems.
Three at the back: At first I was hopeful, I thought it would increase our versatility. But it hasn’t, and it hasn’t improved our defence or stamped our authority on games.
Wing-backs: The consequence of three at the back has been wing-backs, but they have to track all the way back. This limits our width in the attacking third, which is something we’ve needed recently.
Tim Cahill: He delivers. When Australia calls, he delivers. But why do we still need him to? And how much longer will he be able to?
I’m not happy, but I’m glad we progressed… by the width of a post.
