SOCCEROOS PLAYER RATINGS

Mat Ryan 7.5 - Was busy all night and made some vital saves, including Chanathip Songkrasin's long-range bullet and another close to fulltime.

Brad Smith 6 - Was exposed just before Thailand's opener but always gets forward. Atoned somewhat with a crucial sliding tackle to deny Chanathip just before halftime.

Trent Sainsbury 6.5 - The more composed of the central defenders and made some crucial clearances in the second half.

Matthew Spiranovic 6 - Partially to blame for Thailand's opener by allowing Chanathip space on the left. Otherwise solid.

Milos Degenek 5 - Picked ahead of Josh Risdon but looked overrun at times and was targeted in the second half.

Mile Jedinak 7 - Calmly slotted both penalties to save his team from a humiliating loss. Gave the ball away cheaply at times but influential as always.

Tom Rogic 7 - Took a signature long-range stab and his legs lasted well, but couldn't find the piercing pass Australia needed.

Aaron Mooy 6 - Not his best game in terms of creating chances but still a reliable set-piece taker.

Robbie Kruse 4 - Clearly underdone as a result of playing next to no club football. Repeatedly caught offside.

Jamie Maclaren 5 - Worked hard on competitive international debut but lacked service and struggled to impose himself.

Mathew Leckie 5 - Came close to scoring his fourth international goal after 20 seconds. Responsible for the foul that allowed Thailand to claim a penalty and the lead.

SUBSTITUTES

Nathan Burns 7.5 - Came on buzzing and clipped the crossbar with a long-range left-foot strike.

Mark Milligan 6 - Slotted in seamlessly and should have been brought on earlier.

Jackson Irvine NR - Picked up a yellow card in a 10-minute cameo.
