    Australia went down 2-3 to Germany in the Confederations Cup in Russia. Here are the player ratings.

    Mat Ryan – 6. Some solid saves and while no chance for the first two goals, might have been quicker off his line for the third.

    Trent Sainsbury – 6. Slipped for the opener and fluffed a golden chance to equalise but worked back into the contest.

    Bailey Wright – 5. Culpable on the left side during Germany’s early period of dominance.

    Milos Degenek – 5. Picked ahead of Ryan McGowan and gave away possession too often.

    Aziz Behich – 3. Given a bath by right-winger Julian Brandt. Not a night to remember.

    Mathew Leckie – 7. The tireless worker showed why he’s always in Postecoglou’s sides. Pumped up and down the line.

    Mark Milligan – 5. Battled but failed to lead his team out of their early pickle. Became more influential and found Rogic for his goal.

    Massimo Luongo – 3. Off the pace and out of sorts. A poor sliding challenge conceded a penalty and was hooked at halftime.

    Aaron Mooy – 6. A poor first half but came right into the game when brought back alongside Milligan in a more defensive role.

    Tomi Rogic – 8. Anonymous for the first 40 minutes; his shots then brought both Australian goals on his tournament debut and was our best attacking threat.

    Tomi Juric – 7. When Australia had the ball, Juric was threatening. Picked up a tap-in and might have had an assist for Robbie Kruse.

    Substitutes:

    Robbie Kruse (for Luongo 46m) – 7. A game-changer. Kruse’s injection at halftime gave the Socceroos run and bite.

    James Troisi (for Rogic 70m) – 6. Like Kruse, asked questions of a weary German defence and almost curled an equaliser home.

    Tim Cahill (for Juric 86m) – NA. Inserted too late to produce one of the match-winning moments he so loves.

      Leckie was a 5 at best, he gives the ball away far too easily, too often

      Massimo Luongo standard is hardly A league let alone international level – his time at QPR has made him gone backwards and giving away the penalty just shows he doesn’t have a football brain or even common sense – time for him to go and rebuild his game and confidence.

      Expecting Goodwin in the next side arguably at the expense of Wright… and Amini who must be putting pressure on Luongo
