Work together to beat Brazil
Holgier Osieck’s side aim to succeed where World Champions Spain have failed and subdue the Kings of attacking football.
Brazil demolished Double European and World Champions Spain 3-0 in the Confederations Cup final this summer.
Socceroo Ryan McGowan doesn’t underestimate the strength of the task his side face, Speaking to Football Australia he said: ” It’s going to be a huge challenge taking on arguably the best country in the world just now in their own back garden.
“It’s not going to be an easy game at all, but it’s one we are all looking forward to playing and it’s a great chance for all of us to pit our wits against the best players and see how far we are off.”
The 24-year-old added that teamwork was going to be key in Saturday’s clash : “Obviously it’s going to be a hard task and a lot of defenders all across the world have tried and not succeeded in keeping these guys quiet.
“I think if we defend as a unit and as a whole team then we might have some more success and hopefully that’s what we do.”
Saturday’s game is the first in a tough double header for Holger Osieck’s men, who also face France on 11th October.
They will also have to face Neymar and co without their own creative genius, New York Red Bulls playmaker Tim Cahill will be absent from the game with a ankle injury.
