The Young Socceroos had an opportunity to break the deadlock six minutes into the second half when they were awarded a penalty, but Corey Gameiros spotkick was saved byMohammedHameed. Iraq opened the scoringwhenMohanad Abdulraheem-Karrar turned in a cross fromAli Adnan Kadhim. Corica a caretaker only AHEAD coaching role at Sydney FCwould be a great job, but caretaker Steve Corica is adamant hewas not interested in replacing Ian Crook at the helm. Crooks sudden departure on Sunday after just six games in charge left the A-League club searching for their seventh coach in eight seasons. Crooks assistant Corica has been at the Sky Blues since their inception andwas part of both championship-winning squads in 2005/06 and 2009/10. Capello remains unbeaten FABIO Capello has extended his unbeaten run as Russia coach, as his side drew 2-2with the US in a friendly in Krasnodar yesterday. Anzhi Makhachkala forward Fedor Smolov and Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Roman Shirokov scored for the home side, while midfielders Michael Bradley andMikkel Diskerudwere on target for the visitors. The Americanswerewithout Tottenhams Clint Dempsey and Langdon Donovan of LA Galaxy. Debutants help Socceroos win TOM Rogic and his fellow Socceroos debutants have come away from their first match in the green and gold determined to cement their spots in the national fold. An experimental Socceroos squad posted a 2-1 come-from-behind win over South Korea in their friendly match in Hwaseong on Wednesday night. Exciting youngsters Rogic, Aziz Behich, Eli Babalj and Mathew Leckie were all handed debuts off the bench. The Socceroos go to Hong Kong next month to play the hosts, Guam, Chinese Taipei and North Korea in a qualification tournament for next years East Asian Cup before resuming their World Cup qualifying campaign. Skipper Lucas Neill has welcomed the competition for spots and says it will force those vying for places to lift their standard. They showed they really deserve and warrant a place in the squad, the veteran said of the debutants. Its given the manager some nice selection problems. Zlatan takes control Swedens striker and captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic is mobbed by teammates after scoring one of his four goals against England yesterday ZLATAN Ibrahimovic scored all four goals as Sweden celebrated the opening of its new national stadium by coming from behind to beat England 4-2 yesterday. The Sweden captain became the first player to score at the Friends Arena and then struck three times in the final 15 minutes after goals from Danny Welbeck and debutant Steven Caulker had threatened to spoil the Swedish party. The result meant that Sweden avenged its 3-2 loss to England at Euro 2012, while England coach Roy Hodgson who handed debuts to six players tasted defeat over 90 minutes for the first time in 12 games. It also meant that England captain Steven Gerrard had to stomach a loss on the occasion of his 100th cap, as Ibrahimovic moved ahead of Henrik Larsson and into third place in the list of Swedens all-time scorers. In a sensational climax to the match, Ibrahimovic chested down Anders Svenssons lifted pass to volley home the equaliser in the 77th minute and then added a third with a 30-yard free-kick that eluded Hart to nestle in the bottom-right corner. There was more to come. In stoppage time, a throughball drew Hart off his line and when he miscued his headed clearance, Ibrahimovic found the net with an audacious overhead bicycle kick from 30 yards. Despite the pre-match inauguration ceremony, a muted atmosphere and a pitch that cut up badly contributed to a low-key opening. Roar boss plans for Del Piero HE SAID IT RADOVIDOSIC Brisbane Roar coach Once he gets in that front third, hes got such lovely feet A-LEAGUEDRAW Round 7 (NT times) Today: Brisbane Roar v Sydney FC at Suncorp Stadium (6.30pm) Tomorrow: Adelaide United v Melbourne Heart at Hindmarsh Stadium (4pm), Melbourne Victory v Central Coast Mariners at Eitihad Stadium (6.15pm). Sunday: Newcastle Jets v Wellington Phoenix at Hunter Stadium (1.30pm), Perth Glory v Western SydneyWanderers at nib Stadium (3.30pm). MANY of the worlds best coaches have tried and failed but Brisbanes Rado Vidosic believes he knows how to stop Sydney FC marvel Alessandro Del Piero. Well just keep the ball away from him, said Vidosic when asked his tactics to nullify Del Pieros genius. We will keep the ball away from him because we know how dangerous he can be, especially if hes close to the goal. The first appearance of the Italian hero at Suncorp Stadium tonight has created quite a buzz with Brisbanes sporting public, which has been snapping up tickets all week. Vidosic and his players understand the big crowd will be at Suncorp as much to get a glimpse of the silky skills of the biggest overseas star to play in the A-League as much as they will be there to support the home side. The Roar coach, who could really feel the heat should Del Piero and Brett Emerton do a job on Brisbane, said Sydneys superstar signing was not quite as nippy as he once was. Hes lost a little bit of pace, hes not as fast as he used to be but hes still great on the ball and you can see hes talking on the pitch. Hes not just good on the ball, he is communicating and dictating the play. Vidosic hadnt detected any no table weakness watching footage of Del Pieros A-League form. Hes probably not as mobile as he used to be but once he gets in that front third, hes got such lovely feet. He can dribble past anyone. If we can do that, obviously hes not going to be that effective. Brisbanes hopes of halting a threegame form slide received a boost with Besart Berisha and goalkeeper Michael Theo passing fitness tests.
