The Australians ended up with one point after losing 2-1 to France and drawing 1-1 with Denmark.

"We're focussing on us and what we need to do", he said. "We did more than they did".

"There are no small teams or bad players in a World Cup, but the road is still long, we have to fight and be very strong".

Argentina were staring at elimination in the group stage before Marcos Rojo volleyed home the winning goal in the 86th minute, sparking mass celebrations among the crowd in St Petersburg.

Striker Andrew Nabbout is set to miss the game after dislocating his shoulder against Denmark, so Tomi Juric should replace him in the Socceroos' attack.

Behich said he was playing "gutsy football" at this World Cup and feels his performances have been consistent in Russian Federation.

Australia leaves consoled by decent performances even though it didn't get the points to show for it.

As the business end of the 2018 FIFA World Cup draws to a close, several teams are left to scrap for survival or for the top spot on their group with a spot in the Round of 16 up for grabs. "What we couldn't do in the other (matches), we were able to do it today", Gareca said.

"It's not that easy - look at big teams like Argentina, Spain or Germany, they've all had difficulties here", he said.

The World Cup victor was also handed a banner pre game showing an image of him during the World Cup in 1990 in Italy.

Scoring hasn't been easy for Australia at World Cups recently, with its last three goals in the tournament coming from penalty kicks, including two from captain Mile Jedinak in Russian Federation.

Messi magic finally arrives at the World Cup and Diego's on a big one in Russian Federation.

Trent Sainsbury then headed an Aaron Mooy free kick wide of the post late in the first half as Peru entered the half-time interval with a one-goal lead. Ghana did it from 2006-2010.
