On Wednesday June 18 Australia will face Netherlands on the 18th match of World Cup 2014. Australia is in the Group B this time with Spain, Netherlands, and Chile. Spain, however, are just about favorites to top the group. After cruising into the 2010 World Cup finals, they will prove their qualities this time. The Dutch went unbeaten in World Cup qualifying. Now led by coach Louis van Gaal, but they are not in the best form at present. Unfortunately, the Netherlands has slipped in the years since the last Cup. They slipped down in the rankings after flopping at Euro 2012. The best they can realistically hope for this world cup 1st round is a second-place finish as the Dutch are faced with a tough group outside of Australia. But it will not wrong if we say all three group contenders know victory against Australia will not easier to overcome. This is their third consecutive World Cup. Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said, “All of the pressure is on our rivals, they are under pressure to win and we’re not going to make it easy for them, we know it’s very difficult for us to advance, hopefully we can surprise them.” At this moment Australia has an official FIFA ranking of 59.
