Australia, who still have a survivor from that match in Tim Cahill, went on to make a drought-breaking return to the World Cup in Germany 12 months later.

Earlier today, the inexperienced side from the Germany met Australia on Monday at Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht.

Loew has left most of his World Cup-winners at home and brought an inexperienced squad, who have made just 179 worldwide appearances between them, to Russian Federation. Draxler looks like he's on the cusp of a massive step forward in his quality level as a player, striker Timo Werner dropped a lot of jaws playing with Leipzig last season, and Leon Goretzka, Emre Can, and Julian Brandt are all trying to prove that they can hold their own as part of the senior national team squad.

"If we take our game to them, which is what we're going to do and what we always do, we'll cause them problems".

The Socceroos are still learning to adapt to a new back three formation but Wright is bullish about their chances adding: "We're going to be a hard team to play against. We need to get a quick goal and then exert some dominance".

The Socceroos open their Confederations Cup campaign against Germany on Tuesday (1am AEST), with matches against Cameroon and Chile to come in the following six days of a condensed competition.

"We know that they're physical, they're well drilled, they're good footballers".

"There is a lot of pressure on them as a country to do well here and on their players, who are fighting for a spot hopefully at (next year's) World Cup for Germany". They know they have to produce.


"We just have to believe now - that's the biggest key", he said. The Borussia Moenchengladbach midfielder got his first-ever goal for Germany after Julian Brandt had set him up nicely and with a brilliant start, the stage was set for the World Cup champions to go on a blitz.

World-class goalkeeper Neuer is recovering from foot surgery, so Bayer Leverkusen's shot-stopper Bernd Leno is tasked with keeping Australia's attack at bay.

Since then, they have lost 4-0 in a friendly to Brazil. In 2011, they celebrated a shock 2-1 victory over an under-strength German side in Mönchengladbach before drawing 2-2 with the World Championsin Kaiserslautern in 2015.

Brazil have won the last three Confederations Cups, but will not be able to defend their trophy after failing to win either the World Cup or Copa America.

Ange Postecoglou has put his entire squad on red alert to be ready for all three matches as he crafts a strategy that could take the Socceroos through to the semi-finals.

"While others may think there's some sort of weakened aspect to it, that's not how we're approaching it".

Germany face Group B leaders Chile on Thursday evening (8pm) in Kazan, while Australia take on bottom club Cameroon (4pm).
