Still undefeated but with 4 draws from 6 games Australia were in danger of losing touch with the leading pair of Saudi Arabia and Japan. As it turned out the Socceroos prevailed on an improved but not dominating display to keep in touch for the automatic qualification spots and this result also signaled the last for the UAE coach as he resigned after the game. This was a World Cup Qualifying match.
