Following a record-breaking World Cup campaign, Socceroos boss Graham Arnold says he felt like the Aussies 'failed' at Qatar despite prevailing to the round of 16 with a heavy underdog tag. 

Losing in a gripping contest to Argentina on Sunday morning (AEDT), the Socceroos were evidently emotional after their dream run came to an end.

Taking Australia to their best result ever, even after almost failing to qualify, the team of domestic stars rocked Argentina to the final moments.

Australia also managed to win two of their group games, keeping consecutive clean sheets for the first time in their Cup story. 

Arnold found himself asking 'what if' after the game, thinking of the Socceroos possibilities in a quarter-final where they would've faced Netherlands. 

He was one win away from undoubtedly becoming Australia's best manager in history.

'Of course they’re extremely disappointed. But it’s not every day you get to play the third best nation in the world, and against those type of players. I felt we did very, very good tonight,' Arnold said.
