Syria's questionable spot-kick against Socceroos

Watch: Tom Rogic Scores Last Minute Screamer In Mad Asian Cup Tie Watch – Tom Rogic Hits Incredible Injury Time Winner for his Country

Trailing Australia 2-1, Syria were awarded a spot-kick in the 78th minute for an apparent foul on Omar Al Somah in the box.

Palestine's Asian Cup hopes were rescued by Australia as a 0-0 draw with Jordan eventually proved enough for them to finish third in Group B.

The Australians soaked up some early pressure before taking the lead in the 41st minute when Awer Mabil netted with a attractive curling strike from the edge of the area that gave Ibrahim Alma no hope in the Syrian goal.

Australia looked nervous in the early stages with Syria wasting two chances to claim a surprise lead.

However, Australia were getting close and Awer Mabil, after seeing one raking shot blocked, unleashed a fabulous effort that curled into the top corner four minutes before halftime.

Six minutes later Maclaren would twice force saves out of Syria's keeper Ibrahim Alam after he was played through on goal by Tom Rogic.

Mouaiad Al Ajaan delivered a pin-point cross ball from left that Khrbin powered home at the second attempt after Ryan had parried his initial header.

Kane on Tuesday night tweeted: 'Injuries are part of the game but no one will be working harder to get back fit'. The 25-year-old is Tottenham's top scorer this season with 20 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions.

After the break Australia would restore their lead as a Chris Ikonomidis strike was ruled to have crossed the goal line in the 54th minute after an incisive cross from Rogic.

Australia's luck finally ran out with 10 minutes to go, Ryan punching clear a Khrbin free-kick but when the ball was returned into the area, Milos Degenek fouled Al Soma and the striker coolly converted.

What does it mean?

Palestine's exhausted players sank to their knees when the fulltime whistle sounded at the end of Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Jordan - but a goal scored 170 km away dramatically extended their involvement in the Asian Cup. Arnold will be pleased to have got through but his team will have to perform much better if they are to go deep in the tournament.

The midfielder has received a lot of criticism from some Socceroos fans as of late but that's two assists and a late victor in the last two games!

While Rogic was calm and measured, the same can not be said for Australia captain Milligan who produced an error-strewn performance.
