The must-win World Cup qualifier will not be straightforward but a superior surface to that encountered in Honduras will help
For a national team that has undergone drastic generational and stylistic change under Ange Postecoglou, and given the unfavourable conditions and key injuries in attack, Australia’s goalless draw with Honduras was as good a performance as could have been expected. It may also come to define the coach’s tenure.
The tie is now set up for Australia to attack when the two teams meet again on Wednesday night in Sydney. Both Postecoglou and his players have 90 minutes – or 120 – to be brave, assertive and decisive.
