Caltex Socceroo manager Ange Postecoglou says each of Australia’s opponents will provide a unique challenge after the draw for the Confederations Cup 2017 on Sunday morning (AEDT).
Ange on Chile
"One of the great teams in the world of recent times who continue to impress with fantastic players who are very much at their peak. They’ll be a good test for us. They played well at the last World Cup and it’ll be interesting to see how both teams measure up."
Ange on Germany
"Always a major player in major tournaments and I’ve no doubt this will be the same. They are sort of regenerating their team a little but they’ve started World Cup qualification strongly. We played them recently in a friendly but to play them in a major tournament is an exciting prospect. And our continued growth as a nation will only come when we play against the very best."
Ange on African nation (TBC)
"We know how tough it is to win an African Cup of Nations so which ever team it is, it’ll be a good test. And obviously we haven’t played African opposition in quite a while. There’s no doubt there’ll be some pretty exciting games in this group."
