The Young Socceroos defeated Laos 2-0 overnight in qualifiers for the 2016 AFC Under-19 Championship.
After defeating Phillipines 6-0 in their group days earlier, the Aussies eased past Laos at the Lao National Stadium.
New Melbourne City signing Steve Kuzmanovski opened the scoring just before the break.
The Young Socceroos doubled their advantage in the second half thanks to Mario Shabow to earn a good 2-0 win.
