Cahill double for Kruse control Socceroose over Jordan

29 March 2016, 19:19

Canberra - Bayer Leverkusen's Robbie Kruse delivered a pinpoint cross for stand-in skipper and unmarked Cahill to tap into an empty net in the 24th minute.

Kruse was again the provider 15 minutes later when he released midfielder Mooy on the left and Mooy slotted past goalkeeper Amer Shafi for 2-0.

Kruse made his third assist in the opening half with another lovely cross. Cahill met it with his head for his second on the night.

Australia led 3-0 at halftime after Jordan fell away in the second period of the first half, giving the visitors an insurmountable task in the final 45 minutes in Sydney.

Rogic ensured there was no way back for Jordan with his third goal in the last two World Cup qualifiers and Australia's fourth in the 53rd minute.

QPR starlet Luongo scored the Socceroos' fifth goal just five minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Yousef Al-Rawashdeh was fortunate not to see a red card when he scythed down Kruse in a vicious tackle which left the Socceroo clasping his left knee on the ground. But Kruse resumed before being subbed by Nathan Burns with 20 minutes left.

Abdallah Deeb scored a consolation goal for Jordan in the final minute of regulation time.
