Fans heading to Suncorp Stadium and ANZ Stadium to get behind the Caltex Socceroos in November could be in for a treat.
Those who didn't get up at 3.30am AEDT to watch the first game of Graham Arnold's reign, a 4-0 victory over Kuwait, might not be fully aware of what to expect from the forthcoming matches with Korea Republic and Lebanon.
The simple answer is that it will not be dull.
After confirming his squad for the forthcoming friendly with Korea Republic, Arnold was asked to explain the new style he wants to impose on the team.
“If I can sort of replicate it, and make it easier, I’d say a bit like Liverpool play and Paris Saint-Germain, with three No. 9s," he said.
“Three players with pace, three players that are good in a one-v-one action and players that can make a difference.
“Then with full-backs up high and giving us the width.
“It’s a modern day system and about numbers and getting players in the right areas to score goals.”
Arnold is confident he will be able to impose the style of play given the competitive nature of his squad.
Having ran his eye over 39 different players since his first camp in October, Arnold believes the group are fully aware of the challenge ahead of them.
He added: "I think it is a really exciting squad. It is was a squad that is pretty hard to pick.
"When I first sat down to pick the squad in Turkey two months ago it was pretty easy to select.
"The pool is certainly getting deeper. From then to now we've been able to reach out to 39 players and there are some to miss out from this squad.
"I'm very keen to see us play against Korea in Brisbane. It's going to a fantastic game, it's going be a big crowd, the Socceroos are back in Brisbane for the first time a very long time.
"But at the same time it's all about our new style we're implementing in the team, the new principles of play that we've worked hard on in the two camps we've had and it's all about our performance."
