Australia head to Russia 'buzzing' after Hungary win

Australia Portraits- 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Australia looked lethargic in the first half and had goalkeeper Mathew Ryan to thank for keeping the score level at halftime after some good saves to deny the hosts.

The 19-year-old Melbourne City forward scored from 20 yards just one minute after coming on for his second cap.

Australia get their Group C campaign under way against France on June 16 in Kazan, before also playing against Denmark and Peru.

Three defensive howlers have produced three goals in Australia's final hit-out on the road to the World Cup, with Daniel Arzani netting a debut global goal in a 2-1 win over Hungary.

However, Australia defender Trent Sainsbury headed into his own net after a misunderstanding with substitute goalie Brad Jones with two minutes remaining.

Van Marwijk said that faced with such a short period of time with the Australian team before the tournament, he needed to have his own people in place to deliver his message, style of play and tactics as quickly as possible.

"When you want to have a chance in the World Cup, those things must be very, very professional and I think that's the case now".

"I know these guys and they don't come for the money, they only come to perform".

Marwijk's side thrashed the Czech Republic 4-0 eight days ago in Austria.

The Socceroos showed low intensity, unable to penetrate or get creative force Tom Rogic on the ball.

Kruse volleyed Aaron Mooy's curved cross onto the crossbar, but was flagged offside, and then skied Mat Leckie's cut-back over the goal.

Jackson Irvine's determination ensured the Socceroos would come out on top.

Van Marwijk said he was most pleased by the Socceroos' winning mentality given their hot-weather training camp in Turkey. "We won, but I already told my players I wasn't satisfied".
