Socceroos news, friendly v Norway

Published

IT’S confirmed.

Australia will not play with three centre-backs under Bert van Marwijk, with the Dutchman immediately working on a new defensive shape with the Socceroos ahead of friendlies against Norway and Colombia.

Ange Postecoglou’s shift to playing with three central defenders and two wingbacks polarised opinion after he pulled his selection bombshell against Iraq in Iran, and then continued with it all the way through until the play-off series with Honduras.

Van Marwijk has worked intensely on defensive shape so far in the two sessions in Oslo, and Mathew Leckie – who got through a lung-busting amount of work as the right wingback in the old system – has revealed that a 4-2-3-1 looks like the side’s new set-up.

“We trained the 4-2-3-1 yesterday in a defensive sense,” he told Fox Sports.
