Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou says there is not need for panic after the Socceroos shock 2-0 loss to Jordan in the World Cup Qualifier in Amman on Thursday.

“We're not the finished product, we haven't said we are and we've got a lot of improvement in us,” Postecoglou said after the match.

"We're not going to throw the baby out with the bathwater though, its one loss.

"I still firmly believe we're on the right track and we've got some home games to come, the task (of qualifying) is still in our hands.

"It's one result. If I was going to tear everything apart we've been building... so far it's been working pretty well, tonight was a test, we didn't pass that test.

“We've obviously got to look at the reasons why.”

The Australian coach also denied that the hostile environment intimidated his players.

“People talk about the crowd but what do we want to do, play in empty stadiums?" he said.

"Its part of football, if our players don't want to be out there on a day like this, they're in the wrong business.


"The crowd gets behind them but that's ok, it's just part of what you expect at this level."

“I thought we were okay in the first half, I thought we were relatively in control. I was hoping we could push on in the second half."

The loss sees Australia drop to second in Group B of the AFC qualification, while Jordan have moved into top spot.
