2022 World Cup Qualifiers - Socceroos

Postby blahblah Sat Aug 31, 2019 7:31 am

The squad to face Kuwait has been announced and there are some interesting names in there including Borrello who is back in form and playing well for FC Freiburg after a long injury lay-off. Taggart is in scinitillating form in Korea so it will be interesting to see who gets the nod to start up the pointy end.

From the Red's perspective Jeggo, Goody, Awer and Leckie are all in the squad.

The full squad is:

Mustafa Amini, Aziz Behich, Brandon Borrello, Milos Degenek, Apostolos Giannou, Craig Goodwin, Rhyan Grant, Ajdin Hrustic, Jackson Irvine, James Jeggo, Mitchell Langerak, Mathew Leckie, Massimo Luongo, Awer Mabil, Jamie Maclaren, Mark Milligan, Aaron Mooy, Andrew Redmayne, Mathew Ryan, Trent Sainsbury, Brad Smith, Harry Souttar, Adam Taggart

0-3 at the finish and a rather pleasing start to the campaign. Jimmy Jeggo had a very good game and has made a decent claim for further starts in the DM role, particularly as he freed up Mooy to play a more creative, aggressive role.

Nice to see Leckie with a couple, though he didn't know much about the first and Awer looked very lively when he came on.

Kuwait had a good 10 minute patch around the 60' but some nice saves from Ryan kept them out. Sainsbury seemed to be giving his man an extra inch of room, and inch that could cost us against better teams.

Not a great performance but great result away from home. Any away win in qualifying is absolutely golden. Well done to the lads, in particular the ex-AU boys.

Mooy desperately needs to get some game time at Brighton following from this. Not that he played badly at all, we just need him to stay in top form.

Agreed. It was damn hot and for most of the second half Australia was seeing out the game. Not easy on the eye but a professional approach which is needed on the road in harsher climes.
