For a team tipped to struggle for goals, Australia's strikers showed their worth against Palestine in Dubai on Friday.

While Andrew Nabbout has yet to feature in the Socceroos two group matches, both Jamie Maclaren and Apostolos Giannou were on the scoresheet in the 3-0 Asian Cup victory.

With Tomi Juric overlooked by coach Graham Arnold, Martin Boyle ruled out pre-tournament with injury and Mat Leckie still recovering from a torn hamstring, Australia's options up front looked slim heading into...
