- Harry Souttar (13')
- Jackson Irvine (76')
The win ensured Australia keep the century-old Anzac Soccer Ashes trophy, which was recently uncovered in a Queensland garage having been missing since the mid-50s.
A crowd of 5761 had been drawn to Premier League Brentford's ground, where the Matildas beat England's women earlier this year, despite the competing attraction of England's men playing Italy at Wembley Stadium.
They saw a reshaped Australian team with Graham Arnold making a quintet of changes from the XI that lost narrowly to England. He handed a debut to 20-year-old Parma defender Alessandro Circati and a first start to Hibernian's Lewis Miller.
The new boys were given an early confidence boost when they combined to set up Souttar's goal.
A set-piece was kept alive enabling Miller's crossing expertise to come into play. At the back post Circati headed the ball down for Duke to volley in what he thought was his tenth international goal from close range.
However, Souttar claimed the goal for his eighth in Australian colours, the ball skimming his chest as it beat Michael Woud.
Woud then dived full-length to turn aside a Jordan Bos drive before Boyle was flagged offside as he stabbed in a Bos cross.
In the second period Boyle brought another good save from Woud after he was released by Metcalfe. That could have been costly as a 64th-minute Bill Tuiloma free kick struck the bar.
But any thoughts of a Kiwi comeback were dashed as Irvine settled the contest.
With the century-old wooden trophy too fragile to travel, Ryan was presented with a silver cup. There are plans for a replica to be produced for future contests.
