Osieck finds positives in loss

Socceroos coach Holger Osieck believes there are more positives than negatives to be drawn from Australia's 3-2 friendly loss to Romania in Spain.

The Socceroos boss could only watch on as Romania scored two goals in the final ten minutes to hand his squad an unwelcome result ahead of the crunch World Cup qualifier against Oman in Sydney later this month.

Romania opened the scoring in the first half through Cristian Tanase before Luke Wilkshire's first-half stoppage-time penalty and Robbie Cornthwaite's second-half goal gave the Australians a sniff of victory.

But after a host of changes to both sides, Alexandru Maxim drew the Romanians level before a stunning free-kick from Gabriel Torje left the Australian reeling ahead of the Oman match.

Australia sit second in its qualifying group, equal on points with Iraq and Oman but eight points behind runaway leaders Japan. However, Jordan, sitting last on four points, is still in the hunt to cause a major boilover in a group many believed the Socceroos could win.

But Osieck believes the Romanian loss is no cause to panic, seeing enough from his charges' performances to leave him in a positive mood.

"When there is a couple of changes, there is always a change in the game," Osieck told Fox Sports. "... this time it was at the expense of a victory, but on the other hand I think we had so many chances in the second half and we should have finished that off.

"That is what you have to pay for if you don't score but all-in-all, I think in particular (the) second half we did pretty well.

"We showed great commitment and I think it was a very positive performance from my point of view."

Veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer echoed his coach's comments, saying the squad was well positioned to tackle Oman despite the 'disappointing' loss.

"It was a disappointing result and the way the game played out, particularly in the second half, was a little bit disappointing," Schwarzer told AAP. "But you've got to take the goods out of it and there were a lot of lessons learned

"I think there were some individual performances that were pretty decent and that's going to put us in good stead against Oman."
