2005 | 3-0 win | International Friendly

Subiaco Oval in Perth was the venue where Australia faced Indonesia for an international friendly in March of 2005. Ante Milicic connected expertly with Stan Lazaridis' cross down left, looping his header into the top corner on 25 minutes. Milicic then scored his and Australia's second after half time with a poacher's goal, deflecting in Tony Popovic's header from the corner. David Zdrilic then put the game to bed on 85 minutes when he controlled Ahmad Elrich's inviting cross and dispatched a clinical finish beyond the goalkeeper from close range.

2009 | 0-0 draw | AFC Asian Cup Qualifier 

Then Australia boss Pim Verbeek named a squad made up solely of players plying their trade in the A-League Men's competition for the as the Road to Qatar 2011 began in January 2009. Just six players in the Aussie-based squad of 21 had previous Socceroos experience and the clash in Jakarta proved a frustrating night. Assistants Graham Arnold and Henk Duut were on charge on the night with Verbeek serving a touchline ban he received from the 2007 Asian Cup with Korea Republic. The Aussies were unable to find a breakthrough and were held to 0-0 draw in front of 50,000 spectators.

2010 | 1-0 win | AFC Asian Cup Qualifier 

Australia qualified for the 2011 Asian Cup with a 1-0 win over Indonesia at Suncorp Stadium in March 2010. Like the previous encounter a year earlier, Pim Verbeek relied heavily on Aussies playing domestically but did call up four overseas based members in Luke Wilkshire, Josh Kennedy, Mark Milligan and Jade North. And it was two of those players playing abroad who played a major role in the decisive opener. Wilkshire's set-piece was headed onto the crossbar by Milligan and had the presence of mind to follow up and quickly swivel his body to steer home the rebound on a tight angle for his first Socceroos goal.
