Australia has qualified for the 2011 Asian Cup in Qatar with a dominant performance against Indonesia.

Australia took the lead before halftime when Dinamo Moscow's Luke Wilkshire's free kick found Japanese based Mark Milligan who scored from a rebound off of the bar.

That's as good as it got for the Aussies who could not increase their lead despite their utter and complete dominance.

The Indonesian team defended well and kept Australian striker Josh Kennedy quiet for nearly the entire match. The standout players for the match were Jason Culina and Thomas Oar (pictured) who dazzled the home crowd with his crosses and trickery towards the end of the match.

Australia defended very well and the Indonesians never looked threatening.

Most players on the team were A-League based and can be proud of themselves after this dominant performance.
