Australia Not Underestimating Iraq Threat

Australia could be the next country after Japan to secure their place to upcoming Brazil 2014 World Cup if they win their latest Asian Qualifier game against Japan this Tuesday. However, despite the fact that their opponent are already out of contention, Socceroos’ tactician, Holger Osieck warned his players that it won’t be an easy ride for them.

Osieck believes that Iraq will still put on a strong effort on Tuesday as they also want to close their qualifier with a positive result instead of gifting something for Australia. Skipper, Lucas Neill agreed with his head coach as the defender stated that Iraq won’t be intimidated even with the sell out crowd in Sydney.
