It was Wright who gave the ball away after just five seconds against Brazil last week, leading to the Selecao's first goal in a 4-0 romp.

That goal stopped the clock at 12 seconds, and might have stopped any chance of an Australian victory in the marquee match.

The result at the MCG was poor but ultimately meaningless, given the friendly match was being used primarily by coach Ange Postecoglou to boost the fitness of some key players.

Socceroos' rotation crucial for Russian success
Ryan McGowan says Socceroos players have been warned to expect heavy player rotation throughout the Confederations Cup.

As a central defender, Wright says he's been caught in some shaky situations before and said the response was what is most important.

"Mistakes can happen. If you dwell on them and let then get to you you can continue to have a terrible 90 minutes," Wright said in Sochi on Sunday.

"It was frustrating. But it is what it is, you put it behind you and continue on with your job.

"I've been in the game long enough, there's mistakes I've made in my career and there's been times when I've put my head down and it's affected me massively.

"The more games you play the more you grow and the more you can deal with it.

"It's not nice, but it's something you deal with and get on with it."

Confederations Cup preview: Group B
Welcome to The World Game’s in-depth preview of the 2017 Confederations Cup. Now we are taking a look at Group B, which houses the world champion (Germany), the South American champion (Chile), the African champion (Cameroon), and, of course, the champions of Asia (Australia).

Wright said the result against Brazil would be motivation for him and the team when they open their Confederations Cup campaing against Germany on Monday night (Tuesday morning AEST).

"When you've been involved in a game you've lost, you can't wait to get back out on the pitch and be given the opportunity to put it right," he said.

"We've got a great opportunity against the world champions Germany to do it."
