FIFA WC AUSTRALIA TEAM: One of the rare teams coming from the region of the world which isn’t Europe/South America/Africa, the country of Australia will be hoping to leave a dent on this year’s World Cup and really make a name for themselves. But, being in a group such as the one they are in, the odds are firmly struck against them.
If they truly want to make it out of the group stages alive, they will need a monumental effort from their lads and some luck on their side too.
FIFA WC AUSTRALIA SQUAD: The team from Down Under has been quite consistent and has been part of each World Cup campaign since Germany in 2006. It is a different story that the group stage is usually where their journey ends, this time though, they will be hoping for something different.
They were good in the World Cup qualifiers as they topped their group in Round 2 and finished third in their Round 3 qualifiers. Now, talking about how they play, their main aim is to build up good attacking scenarios and when they lose the ball, most of their players move back into their defensive positions, so that they have a nice and compact structure to fall back upon.
Sometimes, some of their attacking players stay up and try to press the opposition players, while their midfielders run back, so there is space for the opposition team to exploit, if they can sort this out, they will not be susceptible to good attacks at the World Cup, where teams can punish every mistake you make.
The Danes were extremely strong in their World Cup qualifying stage as they topped their group, ending the qualifying with 27 points to their name. There was no shortage of goals too as they ended up scoring 30 times in their 10 games of qualifying. Their defense too was on fire as they only conceded 3 goals in their 10 games.
AUSTRALIA TEAM NEWS: The Socceroos usually play in a 4-2-3-1 formation, sometimes also in the 4-4-2 formation, but usually in the former. Their skipper, former Brighton & Hove Albion goalie, Mathew Ryan will be key in instilling his defense with confidence as he has played in the top flight more than most of his teammates.
Aaron Mooy will also be vital in the middle of the park, as he will be the player through which the attack of the Socceroos will flow. We have seen his creative exploits in Brighton & Hove Albion, Celtic FC, and also for Huddersfield Town and if he brings out the same for his country, then we are in for quite a couple of fireworks.
AUSTRALIA Team INJURY LIST: Defender Kye Rowles is going to miss the tournament with a metatarsal fracture. Apart from him, no major injuries that could hamper a player’s chances of making the tournament have come out, so the Aussies look good in that regard.
FIFA WC AUSTRALIA GROUP NEWS: The Aussies will be plying their trade in Group D and the 3 other countries that will be joining them will be France, Denmark, and Tunisia. It won’t be easy for them but if they want to extend their stay in Qatar, they will need to drop top displays.
FIFA WC AUSTRALIA Matches & Schedule: Australia will begin their journey in Qatar with their game against France on 23rd November, which will be followed by Tunisia on the 26th and the final group game against Denmark on the 30th of the month.
