Germany overcome scare to edge out Australia

Australia will face Germany in a Confederations Cup, Group B soccer match scheduled Monday, June 19, 2017.

Tomi Juric ensured an exciting finish to the game when he pulled one back in the 56th minute - the goal awarded following the latest Video Assistant Referee (VAR) referral - but Australia lacked the individual quality to genuinely worry an experimental Germany.

This could be one of Australia's biggest test in the Confederations Cup group stages, and if they manage to even earn a point against the Germans, Australia will be pumped up for the remainder of the competition.

"If we can play the style that we know, we can most definitely beat them".

"We lost our way after 60 minutes and need to work on retaining our stability, but a lot of things worked well".

But despite the result, Australia boss Ange Postecoglou heaped praise on his players for their "brave" performance against the world champions. Let's defend a little higher up the park as we planned to do and get our wide players right up into their back four.

"But with world champions there comes a time when there must be changes".

But Germany's failure to cash in on early chances allowed Rogic to rifle home a 41st minute equaliser.

Lars Stindl - another comparative fossil at the grand old age of 28 - broke the deadlock within five minutes, finishing calmly after Joshua Kimmich and Julian Brandt unlocked the Socceroos' left flank.

The opening half-hour saw Australia on the ropes, with Stindl's fifth-minute opener bringing fears of a belting.

Australia nearly leveled things up as Trent Sainsbury got free from a free kick but headed wide under no pressure at all.

It was not to last.

Julian Draxler restored Germany's lead from the penalty spot just before the break before Leon Goretzka put the World Cup holders 3-1 up.

Australia began to dictate the tempo of the game after reducing the deficit and substitute James Troisi curled an effort towards goal but couldn't get enough power on his shot as Leno saved.

Draxler's misplaced pass gave Australia the ball inside their own half and though Rogic's first wayward attempt was blocked by Jonas Hector, he converted the second chance by firing underneath Leno's hands from range.

Germany sent on Timo Werner for the ineffectual Wagner, and the young RB Leipzig striker was causing Australia all sorts of problems with his pace, nearly scoring a fourth goal after a twisting and weaving run but could only manage to hit the post in the 75th minute.

Robbie Kruse has overcome a knee knock suffered in the friendly loss to Brazil, ensuring every Socceroo is fit and available for selection against Germany.
