Chen Ting-yang delivered from the right and Chen Yi-wei planted a bullet header past Mat Ryan.

The celebrations were short-lived, though, as the visitors retook control through Irvine's two-minute double, the midfielder profiting first from a Grant knock-down and then Mabil's pinpoint cross.

Towering centre-back Souttar sparked the Socceroos into life amid a sleepy second period when he connected with a 73rd-minute free-kick from Ajdin Hrustic, who registered three assists in a lively cameo off the bench.

His second freed Maclaren in the box to make it six and another set-piece found Souttar two minutes from the end as the Group B leaders notched a third straight win in the second phase of Asian qualifying.

Exactly who would excel against modest opposition was less clear, yet in Souttar, Maclaren and Taggart, head coach Arnold has players who appear ready to be tested in tougher circumstances.

Grant at home in starting XI

Rhyan Grant is now embedded at right-back - previously a problem position for Australia - and the understanding with his team-mates is clearly improving.

The Sydney FC defender set up the first of Irvine's two goals in much the same manner as one of Maclaren's three against Nepal, timing his run into the box to perfection and directing a header back into the danger area.

Mabil must improve defensive intensity

Though as exciting going forward as ever, 24-year-old Mabil will not be allowed to quickly forget his lazy attempt to cut out the cross which ended in Chinese Taipei's shock goal.

What's next?

Australia's next qualifier, on November 14, is their toughest task in this group - a date with Jordan in Amman. Chinese Taipei are in action on the same day, away to Kuwait.
