Harry Souttar marked his international debut with a brace and Jamie Maclaren notched a hat-trick as Australia settled for a 5-0 win over minnows Nepal in World Cup qualifying.

Born in Aberdeen, defender Souttar changed his allegiance to his mother's homeland earlier this year and enjoyed a first appearance to savour at GIO Stadium in Canberra.

The Fleetwood Town centre-back repaid Graham Arnold's faith with a headed double after a pair of early finishes from Maclaren, who completed the scoring and his treble in the closing moments.

Returning Rapinoe fuels US friendly win over South Korea

  Returning Rapinoe fuels US friendly win over South Korea Megan Rapinoe returned to US team duty for the first time since the World Cup on Friday and was instrumental in both goals of a 2-0 friendly win over South Korea that put coach Jill Ellis in the record books. Ellis's 106th victory as coach saw her surpass Tony DiCicco for most at the helm of the US women's team. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Australia's apparent reluctance to overexert themselves meant the expected avalanche of goals never truly arrived, though the Socceroos did move top of Group B, at least until Kuwait meet Jordan later on Thursday.

Kiran Chemjong's failure to grasp a Craig Goodwin shot gifted Maclaren the sixth-minute opener and the striker quickly doubled his tally, heading home after Rhyan Grant nodded Aziz Behich's cross back into the danger zone.

The towering Souttar was proving a nuisance at set-pieces and managed to stoop to meet Goodwin's corner for Australia's third in the 23rd minute.

A fourth would have followed on the stroke of half-time if not for the match officials, who disallowed a deflected Mathew Leckie effort for offside despite Ananta Tamang being responsible for the touch that deceived goalkeeper Chemjong.

Peter Norman's famous Olympic stand immortalised with statue

  Peter Norman's famous Olympic stand immortalised with statue Forgotten by many for half a century, the heroic Olympic stand of Australian sprinter Peter Norman has finally been acknowledged with a bronze statue. Immortalised outside of Melbourne's Albert Park, the late athlete's daughter Janita Norman says the statue is a sign that Australia is embracing what he stood for in 1968.At the Mexico Games, 200m silver medallist Norman joined black Americans Tommie Smith and John Carlos in a silent protest on the medal dais.© AAP A detailed view of a statue to honour 1968 Olympic athlete Peter Norman is seen at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne, Wednesday, October 9, 2019.

There was no denying Souttar a double, though, as his 59th-minute header from Aaron Mooy's cross dribbled in off Dinesh Rajbanshi.

Arnold turned to his bench after the hour but no other Australian was able to add their name to the scoresheet against the world's 161st-ranked nation, leaving Maclaren to claim the matchball as he fired home in the 90th minute following Jackson Irvine's cushioned control.

What does it mean? Socceroos miss chance to further bolster goal difference

Kuwait, the team Australia brushed aside 3-0 last month, began the road to Qatar by putting seven past Nepal, so there were expectations for the Socceroos to fill their boots in the nation's capital.

The long distances many of Arnold's players covered en route to Australia can be considered a mitigating factor but the former Sydney FC boss will expect a greater degree of ruthlessness against Chinese Taipei next week, particularly as his team have gone goalless in four of eight games in 2019.

Maclaren makes case for more minutes

One man who did his job in attack was Melbourne City forward Maclaren.

Prolific at A-League level, he has found goals harder to come by in the international arena but can be pleased to have added three more to the one he notched at the Asian Cup in January.

Goals elude Goodwin

Unlike Maclaren, Saudi Arabia-based Goodwin let opportunities go begging too frequently.

The 27-year-old attempted five shots without scoring, a return that needs to improve if he is to be in contention for a starting berth on a more regular basis.

What's next?

Australia travel to Kaohsiung to meet bottom-placed Chinese Taipei on Tuesday, the same day as Nepal’s difficult date with Jordan in Amman.
