Australia crash out of Olympics after Ivory Coast defeat

Socceroos coach Graham Arnold felt the performances was 'outstanding' but a problem with scoring goals was proving decisive.

"We had nerves in our first game, but against Argentina we were outstanding and we were outstanding again today. The difference in the game was Kalou. He's a big player and he made all the difference today.

"We've had problems scoring with this team. This is generally a problem with all levels of Australia's national teams. Disappointment aside, I am proud of the work the players put in and I think we have developed as a team."

Defender Nikolai Topor-Stanley, added, "We improved with every game here, but we just came up a little short."
