Arnold’s side laboured to a 1-0 win over the All Whites at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday, with a stunning long-range strike from Awer Mabil proving to be the difference.

It was the only bright spark in an otherwise dour affair between the trans-Tasman rivals as part of the Socceroos’ centenary celebrations.

Several fans were calling for teenage sensation Garang Kuol to enter the contest from the bench and add some needed spice, but Arnold opted not to.

However, the departure of ten Socceroos stars from the camp has significantly boosted the 18-year-old’s chances of making his international debut.

Aziz Behich, Ajdin Hrustic, Jackson Irvine, Fran Karacic, Awer Mabil, Jamie Maclaren, Aaron Mooy, Mat Ryan, Trent Sainsbury and Adam Taggart have all returned back to their clubs.

It’s now or never for Kuol to make an impact and Socceroos legend Tim Cahill is also hoping to see {the teenager} take to the park.

And the former Everton star had some key words of advice for Kuol.

“He’s athletic, he’s quick and he’s confident,” Cahill told News Corp.

“He just has to find those elements within a game to make the difference, because there will be a moment he will get within a game to change it.

“These young players, I’m excited for them, but it’s important that they just absorb everything.”
