AUS 5 – 0 Nepal: Maclaren Hits Hat-Trick as Souttar Scores Twice on Socceroos Debut.

Goals:

J. MacLaren (6) J. MacLaren (19) H. Souttar (23) D. Rajbanshi (59 og) J. MacLaren (90)

Harry Souttar marked his international debut with a brace and Jamie Maclaren notched a hat-trick as Australia settled for a 5-0 win over minnows Nepal in World Cup qualifying.

Born in Aberdeen, defender Souttar changed his allegiance to his mother’s homeland earlier this year and enjoyed a first appearance to savour at GIO Stadium in Canberra.

The Fleetwood Town centre-back repaid Graham Arnold’s faith with a headed double after a pair of early finishes from Maclaren, who completed the scoring and his treble in the closing moments.
