Ben Roche put Australia in front with a 54th-minute free-kick, before substitute Matthew Hearne fired home his first international goal – a spectacular effort from distance.

Russia head into the knockout phase with a perfect record after crushing Netherlands 6-0 in Group D, with the Dutch also through.
