Road to Russia continues for Asia Cup champs.
The quest to qualify for their fourth-straight FIFA World Cup continued for the Socceroos, as they were given the task of facing two opponents in the international window.
First up, our national team played in Perth for the first time in ten years, as a packed Perth Oval (NIB Stadium) welcomed Bangladesh.
It was a true David v Goliath match and the Socceroos did not take the Bangladeshis lightly, as two goals in the first ten minutes opened up a goal scoring flurry, with the Socceroos winning 5-0.
For the fans, it was a pleasure to see Tom Rogic back in the green and gold shirt for the first time in over 18 months and bagging his first goal. Nathan Burns also scored his maiden goal, adding to Mathew Leckie's second ever and Aaron Mooy's fourth in only eight appearances.
Ange Postecoglou's men travelled to other side of the continent straight after their victory in Perth to face Tajikistan in Dushanbe.
Despite political tensions that surrounded the city days before, the locals got out in full force to cheer their team against the reigning Asian champions.
Despite holding out a Socceroos onslaught for more than half the game, they were not able to match Australia's class and fitness, going down 3-0.
Mark Milligan scored his first goal since putting away a penalty against Oman in the Asian Cup, while Tim Cahill took his goal-scoring tally to 41.
The Socceroos are now three from three in the second round of qualifying and are in pole position to advance to the next stage, but they face a tricky trip to Jordan next up on Matchday 5 in October.
