OFC Nations Cup 2002
Auckland, New Zealand 5-14 July

Match 8, Day Four (Monday 8 July):
Group A - Ericsson Stadium
Final Score: Australia 11 vs New Caledonia 0
(Halftime: 5-0 Australia)

Farina satisfied with big win
By Peter Rees - OFC Media Officer

Australian Socceroos coach Frank Farina was not getting carried away with
his sides comprehensive 11-0 win over New Caledonia at Ericsson Stadium on
Monday night.
He remarked afterwards the win itself was more important than the amount of
goals scored. The score perhaps did not reflect fairly on the New
Caledonians who did show touches of flair and even launched a few attacks of
their own. Captain Jean Marc Case was one of the standouts in both attack
and defence.
Farinas troops were clinical in their finishing but were helped by the New
Caledonians reluctance to apply themselves fully in defence, which saw some
gift goals handed to the Socceroos.
Farina added he was most pleased with his players concentration and
discipline.
The other most pleasing aspect was they did the simple things well, he
said.
Debutant Bobby Depotovoski was the star of the match scoring four goals.
The Socceroos only overseas-based player Scott Chipperfield was also
impressive with a brace of goals to his name.
New Caledonia coach Martinengo Serge De Novack was visibly disappointed with
his teams performance claiming the Socceroos were just too big and too
fast and were constantly on the ball which made it difficult for his
players. He explained his team was unable to cope with the level of play the
Socceroos were playing at. The Socceroos certainly looked a better side than
the one that struggled to a 2-0 win over Vanuatu in their first match.
The Socceroos were red hot for the first half of the opening stanza but the
New Caledonians were able to keep them scoreless until the 55 min when
Depotovoski added his second goal from a penalty after New Caledonian
defender Theodore Pan fouled Damian Mori in the box. The floodgates then
reopened and New Caledonia could not prevent one of the worst defeats for
them ever.
