Australia's Wright Has To Settle For Iraq Draw

Bailey Wright played the full 90 minutes as Australia were held to a 1-1 draw in Iraq today.

The Socceroos took the lead in the 39th minute when Mathew Leckie headed home a corner from Huddersfield Town midfielder Aaron Mooy.

But Wright, who featured on the left side of a back three, was unable to add to his recent run of clean sheets in a City shirt as the hosts drew level.

Ahmed Yasin slid in at the far post to convert a low cross from Ali Adnan for the equaliser 14 minutes from time.

Veteran Tim Cahill saw a header cleared off the line in the closing stages, but Australia would have to settle for a fourth draw in six World Cup qualifiers.

Ange Postecoglou’s men return to action on Tuesday when they welcome UAE to Sydney in a game they must look to win to stay on course for automatic qualification for next year’s tournament in Russia.

Meanwhile, Hordur Magnusson, Callum O’Dowda, Tammy Abraham and Gustav Engvall are all in action for their countries tomorrow.
