Brett Emerton is convinced the current situation surrounding the Australian national team is the best it has been for some time.
The Socceroos are currently on a run of seven wins in their past eight games including three from three in World Cup qualifying and the depth of the playing group has played a major role in that streak.
"It's the best it's been for a long, long time, and we're going to need each and every player in the squad over the coming years," said Emerton.
"Obviously there's a lot of games so we'll pick up injuries along the way, but we've shown that the players who have stepped in are up to the task and I feel very comfortable that we'll get the job done and qualify for the next World Cup."
"I thought the boys had another well drilled, professional performance and a very comfortable win,” he added.
"I think we showed by the strength and depth we had a number of players missing, but the boys who stepped in did exceptional and things are looking good for the future."
