Holger Osieck: Brazil game a lesson

Australia coach Holger Osieck says his side’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Brazil provides the Socceroos with an indication of how much work they must do in the lead-up to the 2014 World Cup.

Jo celebrates after scoring one of his two goals in the rout of Australia.
Brazil ran riot against a poor Australia defence.

A brace from Jo, along with goals to Neymar, Ramires, Alexandre Pato and Luis Gustavo, handed the hosts a comfortable victory in Brasilia, but Osieck insists Australia will also take a great deal from the encounter.

"We have come to Brazil to get an idea how football on this level is, and now we know and now it's up to us to analyse and to work on all the elements we have to improve on," Osieck said.

"When you don't play the ball accurate from defence and you give them [possession] easily and the other team, like Brazil, they press and that is what we have to work on and to learn to play the ball under high pressure.

"We haven't played a team like Brazil for a long time. Brazil brings a different quality to the game, they started with a lot of pace, we were pushed back and when we could win the ball we gave it away too easily.

"We played very inaccurate balls up front and that is how we conceded the goals (in the) first half, we lost the balls in the attacking third and against a team like Brazil you get punished for it.

"I must say the quality of the Brazilian team and of the individual players is fantastic."

Australia will take on another world powerhouse in France on October 12 before facing Canada in London four days later.
