The comprehensive 4-0 win over Oman at Stadium Australia Tuesday, following their 4-1 victory over Kuwait in their opener last week, sent the hosts into the last eight of the tournament in some style.Man of the Match Robbie Kruse said the victory was the best performance he had been involved with as an Australian international, while Oman coach Paul Le Guen said the Socceroos were now tournament favorites.Postecoglou, though, has not yet forgotten the brickbats he received as his team went seven matches without a win last year as he negotiated a tough World Cup group and experimented with his playing group.Australia are ranked 100th in the world rankings behind nine of their rivals at the Asian Cup, including Oman (93).
