Sorry about that, we finally have re-connection. Will try and get all the details to you shortly.
The only posiitve to come from the first half is that its still even at the break. Bahrain clearly up for this game and they have really nullified Australia all over the park. Only a Kewell header late in the half was the only attempt at goal as we continually gave over cheap possession, while the defence struggled with the long ball from the Bahraini's. Jaycee John causing all sorts of problems.
Half time - 0-0
45' Ball bobbling around in the box, which Jaafar manages to gather.
44' Shot - Isa - break quickly after Australian turnover, Isa gets clear in the box, but shot from left channel of penalty box, is across the face.
40' Corner - Aust - cleared but back out to Carney, but his cross is poor and easily cleared.
39' Shot - Kewell - 1st chance for Australia, Kewell gets to a cross from Carney, but heads wide. Good chance.
33' As we speak, Wilkshire for the first time gets in behind the defence, cross to back post is headed back across goal by Kennedy, but nobody there for Aussies and cleared away.
Australia has yet to have a decent shot at goal after 33 minutes.
29' Shot - Abdulrahman - shot from acute angle well over the bar.
Verbeek does not look pleased on the sideline with Australia's start to the game.
23' Shot - Hubail - spectacular overhead kick attempt by Hubail from Jaycee's cross... no problems for Schwarzer though.
20' Good ball into the box by Carney, aimed for Cahill, but cleared away.
19' Shot - Jaycee - Schwazrer saves Australia, turning Jaycee's shot after he broke into the box, away for a corner
19' Shot - Cahill - first sniff of chance but blocked at his feet.
It's all very disjointed at the moment.
Australia is unable to keep possession especially in the attacking third.
12' Corner - Bahrain - foul on Kennedy; free kick to Australia
Bahrain has started very well and putting pressure on defence with a series of long balls.
10' Shot - Fatadi - fierce shot from acute angle, which Schwarzer parry's down and is cleared by Neill.
Kewell is playing on the right, with Bresciano on the left and Cahill in the middle of midfield, supporting Kennedy up front.
4' Shot - Jaycee John - first shot of the match from long way out which is easy for Schwazrer.
Its a bumpy pitch facing both teams, which won't suit Australia's passing game.
We are underway.
Sorry a few technical difficulties.
