Socceroos at the 2018 World Cup: How Will They Do?
Expectations are low for Australia going into the 2018 World Cup.
The Socceroos struggled through the longest World Cup qualification campaign of their history, being edged out of the automatic spots by Japan and Saudi Arabia, and needing play-offs against Syria and Honduras to assure them of their place.
Coach Ange Postecoglou resigned after the play-off win over Honduras, and Dutchman Bert van Marwijk will take charge in Russia before being replaced by Graham Arnold after the tournament.
So what does Van Marwijk have to work with? While this squad has some talent, they are well below the ‘golden generation’ that reached the second round in 2006.
There are no Harry Kewells or Mark Vidukas to speak of any more, but there is talent in the likes of Aaron Mooy who sets the tempo and Tom Rogic who brings that X-factor to the team.
Mile Jedinak is a reliable defensive midfielder with an excellent record from the penalty spot, while Mathew Leckie is a speedy presence on the right who will be one of the players charged with providing delivery to target man Tomi Juric.
Australia will look to defend in numbers, with the likes of ball playing centre-backs Trent Sainsbury and Mark Milligan expected to be tested more for their ability to withstand pressure than their distribution.
Group C pits Australia alongside France, Denmark and Peru in a group they are rank outsiders to qualify from. Expect France to come out on top and Denmark and Peru to fight for second place.
How we’ll be following the progress
Our team of experts will be closely following the Australian National Team, along with pre and post match reviews on both the Socceroos and the major highlights of the World Cup. We’ll also be providing some insight on the results and will be following the matches in and out, right up until a team lifts the Trophy!
