World Cup 2022: Everything you need to know about Australia

 

Australia is in the World Cup for the fifth straight year but face an uphill battle if they want to get out of the group stage and into the knockout round.

Having both France and Denmark in Group D isn’t doing the country any favors. Australia hasn’t made it into the knockout stage since 2006 when Tim Cahill was scoring goals for them. The squad hasn’t won a match in the World Cup since and will hope to break that streak this time around.

The squad won 13 matches in World Cup qualifiers to get to this point.
