Confederations Cup Report: Australia 2 – 3 Germany

Confederations Cup Report: Australia 2 – 3 Germany

Chile already beat the Cameroon 2-0 yesterday night, to go top of the group, and will be only confirmed after today’s game.

Tom Rogic – who made HuffPost Australia’s list of the best sports people of 2016 who were not dickheads – scored this lovely goal to make things 1-1.

June 19, 2017 at 18:00, in Sochi, will be another match in the first round of the global tournament – the Confederations Cup, in which the stadium “Fisht” national team of Australia will play against Germany.

“It’s just disappointing. I didn’t come here to lose games”. “I’ve already played under him for a year”.

“Maybe that’s just my demeanor”, Postecoglou said after a series of abrasive responses to questions ahead of Australia’s Confederations Cup opener against Germany on Monday.

Germany once again looked like they were going to run away with the game just after halftime, scoring their third in the 48th minute.

“We know they are a young side, but we also know they have a lot of great players”.

German coach Joachim Low has only selected Shkodran Mustafi, Matthias Ginter, and winger Julian Draxler from the World Cup winning squad.

Loew has said there is much more to come from his young squad and his starting line-up in Sochi had only 138 worldwide appearances between them.

Germany always seemed to have an extra gear and they exercised it nearly straight from the kick-off as they restored their lead from the penalty spot.

“They know they have to produce”. Unfortunately for them, the influential left-back picked up an injury in the 1-0 defeat of Morocco in a 2019 continental finals qualifier played just before they set off for Russian Federation, and has not been replaced.

Australia coach Ange Postecolgou wants his team to start well in the Confederations Cup.

“As much as you try and set up the team to be fearless in terms of where we want to defend, it’s human nature that we fell back a little bit and probably gave them a little bit too much room and respect”, he said.

“I don’t buy into any of that stuff“.

Good question, the Confederations Cup is held every four years and sees the World Cup winners, most recent Federation Internationale de Football Association confederation champions and the host country all compete in what is often seen as a prelude to the World Cup.

“They have faultless during their qualifying“. Although he hasn’t scored for England in their U-21 European Championship so far, Aidy Boothroyd is expected to name Abraham in his starting line-up.

Being on the verge of 100 caps and 50 goals, Cahill can make history at this Confed Cup – whether he starts or not against Germany.

Cameroon are unlikely to offer the same threat as the Germans, even if the world champions have come to Russian Federation without a host of leading players.

“Being able to have the chance to get to either mark would be a massive honour in my career, but I would prefer to take success in this competition“.
