We deserved to win against Honduras: Wright
Bailey Wright felt the Caltex Socceroos should have come away with a win but admits Australia will take confidence from their hard fought 0-0 with Honduras on Saturday (AEDT).
The Socceroos dominated large periods of the first leg in San Pedro Sula but couldn’t get the breakthrough in tricky conditions.
“It was a tough game under tough conditions but we dug in deep and we got something out of the game,” Wright told FFA TV.
“Maybe we go could of gone on and won it. We deserved to win it that’s for sure.
“We’ll take plenty of confidence going into the second game now back in Sydney.”
The 0-0 result leaves Australia in a good position for the return leg on Wednesday, with a win enough to secure passage to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
And after enjoying the better of the contest in Honduras, Wright believes the Socceroos are well placed to secure qualification in Sydney.
“There’s massive positives to take. There’s plenty of talk of Honduras being a tough place to go to get a result, Wright said.
“I felt we were pretty comfortable throughout the game and that’s due to hard work and sticking to the plan.
“I felt we deserved and we could have quite easily got more out of it and won it.
“We’re confident now going into the second leg.”
