On the Asian front, the Caltex Socceroos remain the fourth-highest ranked nation, behind Korea Republic but ahead of reigning AFC Asian Cup champions Qatar.

The senior men’s team was not in action last month due to Head Coach Graham Arnold taking charge of the Under-23 side as they successfully qualified for the 2020 AFC Under-23 Championships.

The competition, taking place in Thailand, will double as qualification for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo with Australia needing to finish in the top three to book their ticket.
