Quick goal remedy for Cup time-wasters

The Socceroos say the only way to avoid the frustration of the time-wasting tactics so often employed by Jordan is to score early in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

Both Mark Bresciano and Sasa Ognenovski - who play their club football in the Middle East and know well what to expect - say an early Socceroos goal will ensure the visitors will have to play rather than park the bus at Etihad Stadium.

And it would also mean the feigning injury as a time-wasting tactic so hated by Australia's players would also not come into play on Tuesday night.

"Score early, and you make them impact the game. If they need a result, they're going to have to do that (score themselves)," said centre-half Ognenovski.

"I'm sure they won't be rolling around on the ground if they need a win."

And Bresciano added: "I'm thinking if they have the result they want, they're going to do the same thing (waste time) - that's part of their tactics.

"We've just got to hope that it's never going to get to that situation. We're hoping from the whistle that we can hurt them."

Jordan need three points as much as the Socceroos.

Otherwise a draw leaves the Jordanians facing a sudden-death situation, in which they'd need all three points against Oman in their last game to have any hope of qualifying.

Bresciano said he hoped Jordan's need for a win would encourage them to attack more, believing the Socceroos play their best against teams who play an open brand of football.

"I hope they do come out and play open, and not try to park the bus," he said.

"Personally, I think as a team, we play better when it's an open game, where we have teams that come to us and try and play their football, and obviously try to attack. They're the games we perform our best."

Ognenovski agrees.

"They're going to come into the game wanting to win, because if they do they've got one foot in the door for the World Cup.

"If they come here and attack, hopefully it works in our favour."

The Socceroos will guarantee themselves a World Cup berth with wins in both the match against Jordan and their final qualifier against Iraq on June 18 in Sydney.

Otherwise, they will need other results to go their way or possibly face a third-place finish and further playoffs through Asia and South America to win a spot in Brazil.
