THERE were plenty of lessons from the Socceroos’ first camp under Bert van Marwijk, but it also created as many headaches as solutions.

The 4-1 loss to Norway, followed by the 0-0 draw with Colombia, exposed the teething problems that need to be quickly fixed before Russia, and while a player like Massimo Luongo put his credentials front and centre, others, particularly defensively, will make the new Dutch mentor look closely at other options floating around Australia and the football globe.

The latest edition of Fox Sports’ Socceroos Power Rankings reflects the learnings from van Marwijk’s first outing, while also grading candidates on their indispensability/competition for their place, as well as their recent fitness, form and role for club and country.

Despite a clear core emerging in recent months, the Norway-Colombia double header has surprisingly re-written the hierarchy.

In fact, the new No.1 – with a bullet – has actually rocketed without kicking a ball in anger in competitive action.
