Cummings scores as Socceroos win 2-0 in NZ
The Socceroos will head to the World Cup as winners after a youthful side overcame New Zealand 2-0 in their final friendly ahead of Qatar.
Graham Arnold blooded a pack of youngsters at Auckland’s Eden Park, but the squad’s oldest outfielder, striker Mitch Duke, grabbed the first goal.
Jason Cummings then converted a penalty after fine work from fellow debutant Garang Kuol, giving Arnold plenty to think about as he mulls his World Cup squad.
With Thursday night’s XI that beat the All Whites 1-0 spared the trip to New Zealand, Arnold said he wanted to use the match to find his ‘Plan B’ for Qatar.
