Daniel Arzani's fierce shot in the 74th minute caught goalkeeper Denes Dibusz by surprise, fumbling the ball as it went in.

The biggest positive for Australia was 19-year-old Daniel Arzani, who scored just 67 seconds after he was introduced as a substitute in the 73rd minute.

Unsighted or otherwise, the custodian completely missed the bouncing effort to give Australia the lead.

Arzani simply and calmly walked to the corner to celebrate, touching the ground and embracing his teammates.

The goal changed the pace of the otherwise tepid encounter, with little of note before it, but madcap scenes afterwards.

Hungary levelled two minutes from time courtesy of Trent Sainsbury's own goal before Australia profited at the other end from a mistake, this time Tamas Kadar turned Jackson Irvine's cross into his own net in stoppage time.

The Socceroos begin their World Cup campaign against Group C opponents France on June 16 in Kazan.

But it was far from a vintage display.

THE salaries of eight Socceroos coaches are coming directly out of the back pocket of new coach Bert van Marwijk, it has been revealed.

"Bad", he said. "Especially in the first half. When you try to develop a team in such a short time I need to work with people who know me", van Marwijk told the Sydney Morning Herald. They wanted to win.

Kruse volleyed Aaron Mooy's curved cross onto the crossbar, but was flagged offside, and then skied Mat Leckie's cut-back over the goal.

Mat Ryan was on hand to make a one-on-one save from Adam Szalai to preserve a deadlock into the break.

It came about from a well-worked move by the Socceroos as they played the ball out from defence and patiently but deliberately worked the play from right to left.

Van Marwijk's greatest moment was leading the Netherlands to the World Cup final in 2010, when the "Oranje" were beaten 1-0 by Spain in South Africa.
