BERT van Marwijk names his first Socceroos squad next week in a massive indication as to who holds the inside running for a coveted spot in Australia’s 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Ange Postecoglou might have developed an established core over four years, but with a new man, comes new ideas. One just needs to look at the news out of Holland last week, which revealed conversations between the Dutchman and goalkeeper Brad Jones, who has not played for Australia since 2014, to see how clean the slate is for Australians playing across the globe.

Friendlies against Norway (Saturday) and Colombia are critical on two fronts for the Socceroos: precious time acclimatising to a new boss, while allowing fringe candidates to audition in front of his eyes.
