Socceroo player ratings

How did the Socceroos rate in Curitiba against Spain? Here are our individual player ratings for the clash at Arena Da Baixada.

Socceroo Man of the match: Matt Leckie

Mat Ryan 7

A solid performance but could do little to stop the three goals. Did well to intercept Torres late on.

Ryan McGowan 6

Tough going against a rampant David Villa. 

Matt Spiranovic 6

Composed on the ball and battled gamely against Torres, Villa and Co.

Alex Wilkinson 6

Like Spiranovic a tough day against the classy Torres but did a solid job. 

Jason Davidson 6

Never gave up but at times was found out against brilliant Spanish forward play. Looked very tired by the end. 

Mile Jedinak 5

Wasn’t one of his best games – too many misplaced balls.

Matt McKay 6

Worked hard but tough going against Iniesta and Co.

Matt Leckie 8

Shining light on a tough day for the Aussies. Always looked to create trouble.

Oliver Bozanic 6

Showed glimpses of his class but came off in the latter stages

Tommy Oar 6

Came off with a knee injury but looked lively at times.

Adam Taggart 5

Failed to make an impact but what an experience for the Jets striker.


Halloran 7

Electric when he came on for Taggart at the break - just what the Aussies needed as the Socceroos came back into the game before the Spanish scored twice late on. 

James Troisi 7

Came on for the injured Oar in the second half; looked lively and made things happen.

Mark Bresciano 6

Came on for the last 20 minutes for Bozanic.
