Fresh from his Cup of Nations triumph with the Matildas, coach Ante Milicic now has the small order of a World Cup campaign to organise.
Nine goals, three wins and one trophy.
You might think Matildas coach Ante Milicic was happy with how his team ended the Cup of Nations, winning the tournament at AAMI Park after a 3-0 defeat of Argentina.
You'd be wrong.
"I'm a bit disappointed to be honest," he said of the Argentina success.
"We were a bit sluggish from the start.
"We weren't decisive in our passing and our decisions.
"We probably needed to work on our positioning ... at the same time I thought we were a little bit naive as well. We played a game that they were after."
Milicic has quickly adopted high standards for his Australian side, and just as well too given the ambitions for the Matildas are to go deep into June's World Cup.
There are three months and two days until the Matildas face Italy to begin their World Cup campaign, before clashes with Brazil and Jamaica's Reggae Girlz to round out their group.
At this stage, the only date in the diary until then is an April 5 clash with world champions USA in Colorado.
The rookie coach will now head back to Europe to fill in the blanks, including a pre-tournament camp and two more friendlies.
"The most important part is the footballing element," he told AAP.
"Who we can get games against, what quality and what dates.
"Croatia is an option only because I know I've got good relationships, (I know) the training bases and any little things.
"We've definitely got a couple (of options). We're looking at three different countries so next week already I'll go and visit a few places."
The possibility of a large-scale farewell game was considered but rejected considering much of the Australian squad would be travelling from club duty in the USA and Europe, with Milicic loathe to add travel into the equation.
Milicic said the Socceroos' pre-World Cup camp in Antalya was also tabled but rejected as he wouldn't be able to coax high-quality rivals to Turkey in the build-up.
"Games against European countries are my preference and I definitely want one game against a top-10 country," he said.
While Milicic and his backroom team consider their next moves, the Matildas will head back to their clubs.
With injured players Katrina Gorry and Kyah Simon on the comeback trail and others putting their hand up for a World Cup berth, Milicic is keen to acknowledge their efforts.
"I'll use the USA tour as another opportunity to see more new faces," he said.
"I need to in a short space of time, look at as many as possible that are fit and playing."
