Socceroos face big test

Jun 25, 2017-

Australia face Chile at Moscow’s Spartak Stadium with a draw good enough for the Copa America champions while the Socceroos need a win by three clear goals to reach the last four. It would be the biggest result in the three-year tenure of Australia’s coach Ange Postecoglou. “Our game against Chile is another massive one for us,” said Australia captain Mark Milligan. “We will not just be hoping, we will prepare to try to win. Chile are a very good side, but they have weaknesses too.”

Chile captain, Inter Milan’s Gary Medel, is set to miss out after picking up leg injury in the draw with Germany. Having become Chile’s all-time top-scorer by scoring early against Germany, Arsenal’s striker Alexis Sanchez will be looking to add to his tally of 38 international goals.
