AFC Asian Cup 2011
Australia is playing only its second Asian Cup after switching from the Oceania federation and already has done better than four years ago, when it reached the quarterfinals. Uzbekistan lost twice in the quarterfinals before getting through this time. Australia reached the last four with a sapping extra-time win over defending champion Iraq thanks to a late Harry Kewell goal, but its German coach Holger Osieck is confident his players will recover physically.
Uzbekistan are a good team, very European style of football. We go into the game with confidence knowing they’ll play good football, but that we can perhaps expose them in certain areas. “They’ll be full of confidence, the first team into the semifinals, and having an extra day of preparation. Seeing us go to extra time, they’ll think they have a physical edge over us, but I assure you there’s enough spirit in this camp to overcome all that,” Neill said. Australia beat Uzbekistan twice during qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, but experienced goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer said that was no cause for confidence of a repeat on Tuesday. “They’re vastly improved from what they were like when we played them a couple of years ago in the World Cup qualifiers,” Schwarzer said.
