Series defender of the AFC Asian Cup, Australia’s Socceroos went up against Jordan today, and the game has upset many Aussies with a shock defeat by Jordan 1-0.
The two teams went up against each other at the Hazza bin Zayed Stadium in Al Ain, with Jordan emerging victorious, much to Australian fans’ dismay.
Australia was accused of being too cocky
Some are thrilled with the win

The Australian Cricket team is a national embarrassment. Nothing could be worse!

While one sports journo brought out some facts
They’ve beaten #Socceroos in past two World Cup qualifying campaigns & ended their Olympic hopes in 2016 too.#كأس_اسيا #AsianCup2019 #AUSvJOR #الاردن_استراليا ⚽️???????????????? pic.twitter.com/hrexoN8Qla

A hashtag is now trending in Australia to fire the Socceroos coach, Graham Arnold
#ArnoldOut is trending on Aussie twitter
#ARNOLDOUT Is trending after only 87 mins. To be fair it may have been earlier but I only just checked Twitter.

Meanwhile some are just annoyed they couldn’t even watch the game
#AUSvJOR @SoccerAustrali1 To all Aussie soccer fans. What a sad state of affairs that you cannot watch your national team The Socceroos, play in the Asian Cup, without having a private TV subscription. It is a National Disgrace! @Socceroos
