To conclude the first set of matches in the 2017 Confederations Cup group stage, Australia will take on Germany in Sochi, Russia on Monday, June 19. In terms of pedigree, there’s no question which squad is the favorite in this match. But the beauty of international soccer is that anything can happen.
When it comes to a great soccer nation such as Germany, it’s unreal the talent they can boast. Subsequently, they aren’t sending their A-squad it seems to the Confederations Cup. Yet, they’re still considered a favorite. Considering that this team boasts the likes of Julian Draxler, Emre Can, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and many others, though, it’s not hard to see why they’re in that position.
Unfortunately for Australia, they can’t fully contend with the overall talent of Germany. That being said, they’re a veteran squad that could surprise people. Veteran Tim Cahill will be leading the squad, surely. Meanwhile, the hope is that players such as Tom Rogic and Trent Sainsbury will step up to try and shock the world — or at least the Germans on Monday.
