Oar admits Japan goal was attempted cross

Socceroo Tommy Oar admits it.

His wonder goal in Australia's 1-1 World Cup qualifier draw with Japan on Tuesday night was an attempted cross.

"It's all a bit of a blur. I don't remember it taking a deflection, but it was a cross," a candid Oar said of his 82nd-minute looper which snuck between out-of-position Japanese goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima and the crossbar.

"Obviously, I was very happy with the goal.

"But it was obviously a bitter ending to the game. But I think we played very well so we can take a lot of confidence.

"If we play like that again next week and the week after, we're in a good position to qualify for the World Cup."

Oar, the 21-year-old ex-Brisbane Roar winger who has carried much hype since his A-League emergence as a teenager, went a long way to justifying it with his performance against Japan.

His first goal for his country earned him man-of-the-match honours at the stadium - perhaps a big call considering while there was plenty he did right, there was plenty to improve on.

Socceroo striker Tim Cahill was highly impressed with Oar's contribution, and believes his fleet-footedness on the ball will be a weapon for Australia in their two must-win World Cup qualifiers to come.

"I said to Tommy before the game, just be fearless - do whatever you want to do," Cahill said.

"He gave them a real hard time. I'm so happy for the kid.

"In training, he's been showing that for six months. The manager's shown great faith playing him on such a big stage, and he's not let anyone down."

The Socceroos are scheduled to leave Japan on Wednesday for Australia.

They will arrive in Melbourne on Thursday ahead of their clash with Jordan at Etihad Stadium next Tuesday and Iraq in Sydney on June 18.
