Australia vs Hungary Odds
Following the 4-0 demolition job on the Czech Republic, (where it became clearly apparent that the Socceroos have bought into coach Bert van Marwijk’s plans on how to execute free-flowing counter-attacking football), the World Cup-bound Socceroos have now finalised their 23-man-squad.
The four unlucky players to be cut from the team are James Troisi, Josh Brillante, Nikita Rukavtsta and Fran Karacic, which means that Tim Cahill will get a chance to score in a fourth World Cup and Daniel Arzani will become the youngest Socceroo at a World Cup.
Australia are now looking to tune-up for Russia 2018 with a win over Hungary in Budapest on Saturday 9 June.
Whilst the match is tagged as an ‘international friendly’ by FIFA, don’t expect the Socceroos to hold anything back. The Socceroos are looking to further implement their strong defensive and counter-attacking strategy on the unsuspecting Hungarians.
Australia vs Hungary Preview
Brimming with confidence after the 4-0 win over the Czech Republic, Bert van Marwijk’s team will be protecting a 100% record against Hungary, who are currently ranked 49th in the world.
As the Socceroos head into their fourth straight World Cup, the Hungarians will be watching on after missing out on the past eight tournaments.
It has been a big fall from grace for a proud football nation that famously made the finals of the 1938 and 1954 World Cups.
The Socceroos shouldn’t underestimate the Hungarian side who will be aiming to prove their worth after they failed to qualify for Russia.
Best Bet Tip
We like the Aussies to continue their run-of-form and post a win at the outstanding odds of $2.50.
