Socceroos v Norway analysis | Fox Sports

Published

ONE of the benefits of the set-up that Australia used in 2017 was it allowed the Socceroos XI to be loaded with midfielders.

Outside of goalkeeper, it’s undoubtedly the position where the country boasts the most depth, and in San Pedro Sula, all of Massimo Luongo, Jackson Irvine and Aaron Mooy were in the middle of the park, in front of Mile Jedinak.

But a 4-2-3-1 arguably makes things a little less fluid – particularly if the No.10 position, the middle figure in the attacking midfield trio, is being set aside for Tom Rogic to flaunt his talents on the big stage.

There’s the assumption that either of the No.7 (right) or No.11 (left) would provide natural width, via Robbie Kruse or Mathew Leckie, but a player who likes to tuck in, and create extra numbers in midfield, could also be used there, depending on the way Bert van Marwijk chooses to lay out his side.
