Australia face Uzbekistan on January 23 in their final group stage match of the AFC Asian Cup, where the Socceroos have already qualified for the round of 16.

Graham Arnold’s side secured back-to-back wins over India and Syria without conceding a goal along the way and anything but defeat in this match will see them top Group B.
