Australia were pretty uninspiring in defeat to Chile on Friday evening. They appear to be lacking the quality that is needed to overcome these top sides. They seemed destined for a mauling after conceding twice within the first 15 minutes against Chile. Then, they had a good fightback that saw them pull one goal back and repeatedly threaten to equalize until an injury-time Chile strike condemned them to a 3-1 defeat.

Betfair Sportsbook BonusThe Socceroos are not yet certain if they will be able to count on the contribution of Ivan Franjic, who suffered an injury on the match against Chile. Ryan McGowan was his replacement at right-back and could come into the starting XI if Franjic doesn't recover in time.

Netherlands romped to a 5-1 win over Spain on Friday when Louis Van Gaal prepared a fantastic tactical trap against the defending Champions. The Dutch ware now unbeaten in their last 11 World Cup group stage matches, winning eight and drawing three.

The next Man Utd Manager has no major injury concerns ahead of the second game.
The Oranje will certainly play with a more attacking approach this time. Jeremain Lens, who came on in the second half against Spain, will be pressing for a start.

It could seem strange but the three previous head to heads, all friendly internationals between 2006 and 2009, two were drawn (0-0 and 1-1) and the other was won by Australia (2-1).

Australia have conceded an average of 2.7 goals in their last 10 matches, with the likes of Brazil, France, Japan and Ecuador all managing to net over 2.5 goals against them. With the result last Friday included, the Socceroos have now gone four matches without a victory, losing three of those games.


Australia (4-3-3) – Ryan – McGowan – Spiranovic – Wilkinson – Davidson – Jedinak – Milligan – Bresciano – Leckie – Oar – Cahill
