The Socceroos will head into their crunch World Cup qualifier against Japan sky-high on confidence after prevailing 3-1 over Oman to remain in prime position to qualify for Qatar 2022.
The Socceroos also became the first team to register 11 straight wins in a single World Cup qualifying campaign, eclipsing the 10 consecutive victories enjoyed by the great Spain team of 2010 as well as Germany (2018) and Mexico (2006).
“It’s obviously something that I’ll reflect on in the future,” Arnold said.
“It’s obviously a great achievement, but for today it’s all about recovery and getting players ready for the Japan game and (going) for 12 straight.”
