Mile Jedinak has tried to assess Australia's 4-3 international friendly defeat to Ecuador in London on Wednesday night.
The Crystal Palace captain skippered the Socceroos for the first time at The Den as they squandered a three-goal half-time lead to concede four times in the second half - three of which came after Mitch Langerak was shown a red card.
After the match, Jedinak told Fox Sports that the Ecuadorians came very hard at he and his teammates in the second lot of 45 minutes after an impressive opening half.
"They decided to have a go, a proper go," Jedinak said.
"We got caught flatfooted a couple of times. They're a good side, they've made the World Cup. We studied them and they brought some of the guys we looked at in the video on in the second half. We knew it was going to be difficult. Having a man sent off, you're up against it.
"Everyone wants to express themselves. We all back each other. We're all in it together. One in, all in. We need to try and do what's been asked of us and I thought we implemented that really well in the first half."
