Few countries conjure the sort of mystique to the outsider than Russia Few countries conjure the sort of mystique to the outsider than Russia

Germany has brought a very young and inexperienced squad as their coach, Joachim Low chose to rest their star players.

The 2017 Confederations Cup is underway with a big matchup that should be great to watch at 16:00 GMT from Sochi.

The tournament is traditionally used as a warm-up for the following year's World Cup and features the home nation, the winners of six continental tournaments and the reigning FIFA World Cup holders.

However, the likes of Julian Draxler, Shkodran Mustafi amd Emre Can could all make an appearance against the Socceroos. Should they beat Cameroon, it will be their first win in the competition since overcoming Brazil in the match for third place in 2001.

"We believe in the way we play and the system we play and we approach every game in the same way".

In their last 19 competitive fixtures, Australia has suffered just one defeat.

Australia goalkeeper Mathew Ryan feels his side's malfunctioning 3-4-3 system can not be held entirely accountable for the 3-2 Confederations Cup defeat to Germany. "But you can still feel the commitment of this young team".

"Communication-wise we weren't getting organised in defence and we didn't get that sorted until well into the game".

"In the second half we made it hard for ourselves".

"We've gone onto the world stage and competed, not just going there and being physical".

Asian Cup glory booked the Socceroos' place in Russian Federation this year, while a spot here in 12 months' time will stand or fall by an expansive and ambitious playing style.

Although neither team had found the twine by the break, Sanchez's entry into play 15 minutes after play resumed was the key in La Roja's victory, given that he helped manufacture both goals for his squad on Sunday.

The Socceroos shocked the below-strength Germans 2-1 in Moenchengladbach in 2011.

Lars Stindl began the scoring for the world champions in the opening minutes, but Tomas Rogic equalised just before half-time.

"For many it was the first game in such a tournament so I am satisfied", he added. But the German keeper couldn't hold onto the ball, and Juric pounced on the rebound.

"There is no question, it's a team full of character and it's not easy to play well against the best team in the world", said the 51-year-old Postecoglou.

"I felt if we got the ball to our midfield in good areas and with Krusey making some forward runs causing them problems".

But his hand was forced in terms of goalkeeping selection, with no.1 Manuel Neuer out injured. The only way to do that is by playing at this level against the very best.

Germany always seemed to have an extra gear and they exercised it nearly straight from the kick-off as they restored their lead from the penalty spot.
