Confederations Cup: Australia v Chile - Everything you need to know

Jun 23, 2017, 00:42

"They're a good side", said Postecoglou at his pre-match press conference.

"They do more combinations, not playing the long's a team that is courageous and sometimes cheeky enough to challenge the opponents and attack very boldly".

"The bus arrived 45 minutes late at the hotel and then we got stuck in traffic here in St Petersburg so it is not our fault and I think the organisation team must review the way teams are transferred from the hotel to the stadium".

The Socceroos last group match against Chile will likely be a must-win with the latter and Germany the favourites to qualify from Group B.

Team Germany after the defeat in the semifinals of Euro-2016 does not lose for 11 meetings in common with July 7, 2016.

Australia grew into a contest starved of quality, as first Tom Rogic curled a free-kick over before Mathew Leckie blazed Gersbach's low cross above the frame of the goal. "I will just try to help the team in the coming games".

"We have a very young squad and we haven't played together that often", Germany midfielder Emre Can said.

The German team was preparing for the Confederations Cup having played a friendly match against the Danish national team, and there was also an official match of the selection for the World Cup against San Marino.

World Cup holders Germany face Copa America winners Chile in Kazan on Thursday night in one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.

According to Vanguard, the team's head coach, Hugo Broos has rallied his players to inflict maximum damage on Australia, who they confront today in Russian Federation. A 2-0 win for Germany in 1962 was followed by a 1-0 triumph in 1974 and a resounding 4-1 triumph in 1982. But that's exactly what we need. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, however, will be sidelined again because of a left calf injury.

Every time you play against a team with a different style it brings more wealth to our group so I am happy to see we played well against Chile and I hope this will be confirmed in the next two matches.

The eight competing teams comprise the host nation, Russia, the reigning FIFA World Cup champions Germany, and the six holders of the FIFA confederation championships, namely Australia, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal and Cameroon.
