Graham Arnold’s first XI could be in line for something of an overhaul after the Socceroos opened their Asian Cup defence with a listless 1-0 defeat against Jordan in Al Ain on Sunday night. 

Australia struggled to break down the well organised Jordanians, who struck in the first half to secure three points and with it, a famous win in the nation’s football history.

The defending Asian champions started sluggishly but worked their way back into the game following half time, and substitutes Rhyan Grant and Chris Ikonomidis brought some inspiration.

Ultimately, they could not help find the net and an opening day defeat left Australians fuming with the loss.
