The composition of Australia's World Cup team will be interesting. Ange Postecoglou has signalled his intentions not to take old, dead-wood. Everyone is now on a level playing field and if you don't put your hand up repeatedly for a place you will only have yourself to blame. There are no guarantees the old guard - headed by Lucas Neil - will be on the plane.
Safe to say we'll top our group - our performance against a red hot South Africa was scintillating and we couldn't have asked for tougher opposition leading into what is really, a weak group. South Korea managed to concede 16 goals at the group stage, i can really see Spain conceding 17 here, 8 of which attributed to Tim Cahill. I'm pumped and I'm getting my money on Australia early before they drop too far into unbackable favoritism
It might be that they have lots of good young players that I am just not aware of but it looks like the worst Dutch squad I can remember.
If Vidal is fit I'm backing Spain and Chile to progress.

We will wait and see I suppose, hope they are because we will get an excellent group in that case.
Would still be very surprised if Spain fail to top the group, defence is just so much better than the other two. Think they are very decently priced for the whole tournament, can see no justification at all why Germany are shorter odds.
Nah we got this.

Apparently we were the first country to arrive in Brazil for the tourney. In keeping with union rules, first in, last out. Looks like we're heading for the final then.
Can only see us making it out of the group by jagging a win vs Chile, a draw against one of the others and hoping it's enough. Truly a horror group.
We're screwed royal. Can see some truly humiliating defeats in store for Oz.
Kennedy and Rojic left out of the final squad. Says a lot about how well we are going that two players of such quality can be omitted.

Apparently his back was ****ed.
no goal scorer is favourite to score the most goals for Australia this World Cup.
