Caltex Socceroo playmaker Aaron Mooy was delighted that Australia have closed the gap at the top of their World Cup qualification group after Thursday night’s 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia in Adelaide.
The Huddersfield Town midfielder (on loan from Manchester City), who last week helped the Terriers win the Championship Final Play-Off at Wembley, spoke to reporters after the game.
MOOY ON THE WIN
"It was a good result, it was what we wanted, to win.
"We played some good stuff at times. It was a good day."
"We didn’t expect it but they got away with it [playing balls over the top of Australia’s defence].
"Some of their goals were great play, to be fair. Lovely one touch passing moves.
"But we’ll learn from it. We’ll look at the video and learn from what went wrong."
AUSTRALIA’S MIDFIELD OF MOOY, ROGIC AND JEDINAK
"It’s hard to say when you’re actually [playing] in the game. But we did alright. We linked up well and we got Tommy [Rogic] on the ball in the pockets."
MOOY ON HIS OWN PERFORMANCE
"I was happy. I did my job. "
