・The All-Traian team, nicknamed the “Socceroos” won its 31st berth in the long-familiar intercontinental playoffs and qualified for its sixth World Cup in five consecutive tournaments.
・In the Asian qualifying playoff against UAE, they defeated UAE 1-2 in Doha, which is hardly a neutral site, and in the intercontinental playoff against Peru, they lacked decisiveness and went into a penalty shootout, but a strange move to replace the goalkeeper proved successful, and they won by a narrow margin, and Arnold, who had been in the news for a while about his dismissal, was able to get his head straight just in time.
・As their struggles in the qualifying rounds indicate, the quality and quantity of the team members are tough, but when it comes to the “underdogs,” they show unparalleled tenacity, and we expect them to overturn their reputation as the weakest in the group.

・A long-time assistant coach for the A national team, he became coach for the second time in his career in 2006.
・The World Cup in Qatar, which he arrived at after suffering a great deal, was his last hurrah.
・During his active career, he has played for Holland and Belgium. His national team caps include 19 goals in 56 games.
Basic Formations & Tactics
The team’s tenacity, which burns only in adversity, overturns the odds.
・The Australian national team traditionally plays a 4-2-3-1 formation, but in the final stages of the qualifying rounds and the playoffs, the team will play a 4-4-2 formation. The reason for this is to accommodate the opposing team’s system and the absence of a front-line aerial presence, such as Kennedy and Cahill, who can win aerial duels up front.
・In addition to the absence of an absolute FW, several key players have yet to decide where they belong, and without the emergence of new players by the start of the season, the competition is expected to be tough.
・A side-attacking team with wingers who have excellent forward momentum, and either penetrate into the vital zone or cross up the field. The right side of the team is particularly important, and the ability of the SBs and Boyle to break through is the lifeline of the team.
・The current national team is often thought of as a “connecting Australia” under the influence of former coach Ange Postecoglou, but the current A team uses both connection and quick development, with both SBs positioned high in possession and the wingers running into the space in front of them. In possession, the two backs are positioned high, with the wingers running into the space in front of them. In some cases, they are willing to play long balls from the final line.
・Leckie, with his propulsion, holding ability, and height, will be a threat to the opposition if he can find the best solution with the talented wingers. Mabil, with his speed, would also be effective in the second half when he appears to be tiring.
・If the ball is lost, they press from close quarters, but do not persistently chase, but rather the entire team retreads and quickly sets up a defensive formation.
・In an offensive situation, press from someone close to the ball and try to win the ball.

Ajdin Hrustic （MF/Verona）
・”A Mainstay of the Socceroos”
・One of the few left backs in the Australian national team who can make a difference with his dribbling and passing.
