Socceroos v Chile highlights: Australia draw 1-1 to exit Confederations Cup

A DRAW against the South American champions and an exit from the Confederations Cup.

But the Socceroos will carry pride and belief with them back home after a much changed side put in their best performance of the competition – of any competition for over a year – in a thrilling 1-1 draw with Chile.

It was the kind of complete, measured and high energy display Socceroos fans have been yearning for ,and coach Ange Postecoglou has long promised they were capable of.

There will be renewed confidence after this going in to the crucial World Cup qualifiers later this year, and for that alone the trip to Russia can now be considered a minor success.

James Troisi had given Australia a first half lead they had earned through graft and guile, before Chile substitute Martin Rodriguez levelled the match from close range on 67 minutes.
