Caltex Socceroo attacking midfielder James Troisi rued "unforced errors' by Australia after they lost 4-0 to a sparkling Brazil on Tuesday night at the MCG.
Troisi spoke to Fox Sports after the game.
On facing world number one Brazil
“It was a good experience.
“When you look back at the game we took it to them but the most disappointing thing was unforced errors.
“When you’re playing the best in the world a lot of unforced errors and they punish you – and that’s what happened.
“Obviously disappointed – a 4-0 loss but there are definitely some positives out of it.”
Most of the goals we conceded were unforced errors which we’ve got to iron out because we’ve got some big games coming up [in the Confeds Cup].
“You’re never happy when you lose but there are plenty of positives to take out.
“And pleased to get some minutes under my belt so let’s see where that takes me.”
David Luiz’s display for Brazil
"He’s fantastic. If only I could play against those types of players week in week out."
On the early Brazil goal
“Obviously a terrible start. But overall it’s those little glitches; you switch off, you fall asleep and they punish you."
