Socceroos through to knockout phase

Australia have progressed to the Last-16 of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup following a last-gasp 3-2 win over Syria at the Sheikh Khalifa International Stadium.

Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic powered home a right-footed finish from outside the area in the 93rd minute to send Syria packing in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi.

Australia took the lead twice through Awer Mabil (41′) and Chris Ikonomidis (54′) but Syria hit back on both occasions with strikes from Omar Kharbin (43′) and Omar Al-Soma (80′).

The victory leaves Australia in second place, behind Jordan, and they will face either Uzbekistan or Japan in the next round.
