Carney: On target
Australia sealed a 1-0 friendly win over Paraguay in Sydney, while New Zealand were held by Honduras.
The Socceroos claimed victory thanks to a goal from Blackpool midfielder David Carney.
The winner came just after half-time as Carney fired home after good work from Richard Garcia.
Australia's neighbours New Zealand were also in action on Friday evening and they were held to a 1-1 draw by Honduras.
New Zealand went ahead through Chris Wood on the stroke of half time, but Walter Martinez levelled midway through the second-half.
The All Whites then squandered a great chance to win the match as they were awarded a penalty in the last-minute but Shane Smeltz could not convert.
In South America, Ecuador entertained Colombia - who came away with a 1-0 win thanks to Radamel Falcao's late goal.
