Newcastle United's young forward Kuol, who is currently on loan at FC Volendam in the Netherlands, is part of Australia's squad for the Under-23 Asia Cup finals in Qatar, and made a substitute appearance in their first game against Jordan on Monday.

The Olyroos couldn't find a way through, though, and will now look to seal victories against Indonesia and Qatar in their remaining Group D fixtures. Kuol's brother Alou is also part of the Australia squad, and started in their goalless tournament opener.

Australia were unable to find a way through against the hosts in their final group game, meaning an early exit from the tournament for the Olyroos and Kuol, who appeared as a second half substitute.
