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.
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.
