The Socceroos are off and running on the road to Russia, overcoming a dogged Iraq with a 2-0 World Cup qualifying win in Perth.Second-half goals from Massimo Luongo and Tomi Juric ensured the right result for Ange Postecoglous side on Thursday night, even if they were made to work hard for it.A first half of frustration gave way just before the hour mark, when Luongo arrived on the spot to thrash home Jurics squared ball from close range.The former Western Sydney Wanderers striker made sure of the result on 65 minutes, when Mark Milligan successfully drew attention from Aaron Mooys corner, allowing Juric to tap home from a metre.The result pleased Postecoglou, who spoke of the importance of winning home games during this decisive qualifying group stage.I was pleased with both performance and result, he said.Were off to a really good start and should have had a goal inside 20 seconds.We knew wed eventually work them down.Sterner tests await, including the United Arab Emirates, who beat Japan 2-1 in Tokyo on Thursday, next week in the scorching Abu Dhabi heat.But with a shot count of 20-6 and 72 per cent of possession, the Socceroos were content to avoid a potential banana peel in the first of 10 qualifiers for the 2018 showpiece in Russia.The home side were twice denied by the woodwork before Luongo broke the deadlock, and allowed simple errors to creep into their play.On 26 minutes, Mathew Leckies long-range header reduced goalkeeper Mohammed Hameed to a bystander, only to bounce off the inside of the post and away to safety.Skipper Mile Jedinak, who was uncharacteristically astray in his passing, then headed Mooys cross just over.At halftime, it felt like the Socceroos had control of the play, but not the contest.But an improved intensity after the break soon had the Iraqis swamped.A fine move between Jedinak and Leckie saw Mooy smash an effort onto the bar.Australia had their swagger back, and a breakthrough seemed inevitable.When it did come on 58 minutes, Juric was the most grateful man at nib Stadium.The beanpole striker contrived to botch the simplest of tap-ins but, a minute later, he redeemed himself by crossing for Luongo who didnt make the same mistake.Australia didnt let up, and it was Juric who made the game safe a from Mooy set-piece.On his competitive debut, Milos Degenek impressed at right-back, while substitute Robbie Kruse fizzed with energy.Cheap Authentic Air Max 1 .
