Postecoglou Reveals His Team Plan

Australia’s coach Ange Postecoglou has revealed that he has a very good idea of the players who are expected to be in his squad for the World Cup 2014. Australia will be travelling to the World Cup under the new management of Postecoglou after he was appointed only a few months back. Even after disappointment, the form of the national team has not improved dramatically in order to make them favourites to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition. They have won just two out of the last five friendly matches and this includes a 4-3 defeat against Ecuador.

Free money?

It’s said there’s no such thing as a free lunch in life, but also that you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Both these old adages are both right in their own ways; when someone is seemingly giving you for nothing it’s usually with an ulterior motive if it’s on a commercial basis anyway.

Of course, a lot depends on how smart you are and how self-disciplined.

TARGETTING PLAYERS

Australia will be targeting players playing in the A-League for the upcoming friendly match according to its manager Ange Postecoglou.

After suffering consecutive defeats in several competitions, Australia finally managed to rediscover form in the last two matches. Wins over Canada and Costa Rica are bound to have given them enough confidence to take on Ecuador in a friendly match in March.

KRUSE WILL RETURN

Australia's manager Ange Postecoglou has said that he is very much confident that Robbie Kruse will come back from his season-ending injury much stronger.

Kruse has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury, which is also likely to keep him out of the World Cup 2014 as well. The Bayer Leverkusen player is one of the important members of the squad, but he recently injured his anterior cruciate ligament during training with his club.

HIDDINK RULES OUT RETURN

Former Chelsea and Dutch national team manager Guus Hiddink has said that he will not be returning to manage Australia for a second spell after it has been heavily rumoured that the Australian FA are looking at him as a possibility.

The Dutchman recently resigned from his role at Anzhi Makhachkala. He has previously stated that he would like to retire from his managerial career and focus on a desk role like that of a sporting director. He has once again confirmed the same by saying that he is not looking for any new jobs right now.

IMPROVEMENTS

After impressing at the recent World Cup's, Australia's form has improved in recent weeks. The team has suffered the embarrassment of a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Brazil, who will be hosting the 2014 World Cup. Australia are expected to be at the World Cup as one of the first team from the oceanic regions. However, their recent defeat has raised a lot of questions about manager Holger Osieck.

Former Australian midfielder Jason Culina has said that Australia should seriously consider relieving Osieck of his duties and bringing back former manager Guus Hiddink.

Betting tips on the Bundesliga

So the Bundesliga is underway, it has felt like a long time coming. Although it is the third most important league in Europe, it is not exactly one of the most exciting ones in terms of betting on outright winners. In reality it is about as predictable as the Premier League and currently it is dominated by just two clubs: Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Over the last four seasons they have each won two of them and over the last fifteen Bayern Munich has completely dominated.
