Caltex Socceroos skipper vows improvement after shock loss in Oslo

Caltex Socceroo skipper Mile Jedinak gave a brutal appraisal of his and the team's performance after a 4-1 loss to Norway in Oslo overnight, saying it wasn't good enough. 



After taking an early lead the Australians were overrun by an enthusiastic Norway side who came home strongly in the second half to deservedly win the friendly match at Oslo's Ullevaal Stadion. 

"Just disappointing. We really wanted to start on a positive note," Jedinak told Fox Sports after the game. 

"I didn't lead them enough, I don't think. 

"And we conceded a few soft goals from what we've been coached this week. 

"It's a shame it panned out the way it did."

Australia have a chance to tweak their game plan with another friendly against Colombia in London next week. 

Jedinak is looking to this game and more time together to speed up improvement as the World Cup approaches.

"For us, it's about analysing what happened here and how we can rectify that going forward. I've no doubt that's what will happen. 

"We know - I know myself - that we can all do better. 

"It's always nice to rectify the mistakes as soon as possible instead of waiting but I'm sure we'll do the work on the pitch where we need to," he added.
