The Olyroos finished in third place at the Four Nations International Tournament in Hanoi after a 0-0 draw against Kuwait in the final match of the competition.
Olyroos coach Aurelio Vidmar handed international debuts to goalkeeper Jerrad Tyson and defender Matthew Foschini.
The first half saw the Olyroos start slow but the team did create opportunities, with its best chance of the half coming in the 12th minute when Mirjan Pavlovic dribbled into the box and set-up James Brown whose shot forced the Kuwaiti keeper into making a desperate save.
Pavlovic had a chance himself just before the half-hour mark, but the Kuwaiti goalkeeper produced another great diving save to again deny Australia from scoring.
The second half saw the Olyroos control the majority of play, but could not finish the opportunities created which ultimately resulted in the scoreless draw.
Speaking after the match, coach Aurelio Vidmar was again disappointed by his team's lack of finishing but was pleased with their overall performance at the tournament.
'After a slow start with sloppy passing we started to get some good moments in the middle of the first half where we created some chances," said Vidmar.
'In the second half we dictated the play a lot more but the Kuwaitis made it difficult by putting ten men behind the ball. We still managed to create a number of good opportunities but our finishing wasn't good.
'Overall, considering this is the first time we have been together as a group, it has been a very successful ten days with plenty of positives that will lead us into our preparation for next years qualifiers for the London 2012 Olympic games," concluded Vidmar.
DPR Korea was crowned the eventual winners of the tournament after a 0-0 draw with host nation Vietnam confirmed its position at the top of the table on seven points, with Vietnam and Australia equal on four points, but Vietnam ahead on goal difference, and Kuwait on one point.
