Style and sub­stance in prepa­ra­tion plans

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

AUS­TRALIA will look to lock in friendly matches against South Amer­i­can and Euro­pean op­po­si­tion as it pre­pares to make an im­pact at Rus­sia 2018.

As­sis­tant Ante Mili­cic says Aus­tralia will aim to or­gan­ise matches against teams that play a sim­i­lar style to their Group C op­po­nents.

“You’ve got to look at the group and the styles we might come across,” he said. “There’s a lot of fac­tors to take in and we’ll digest the draw over the next cou­ple of days, but rest as­sured that this Aus­tralian team will be pre­pared well. We’ll do all the work we need to do in terms of prepa­ra­tion games, but lo­ca­tions as well. “Not only for the op­po­nents, but also where those games are best suited to be played.”
