Caltex Socceroos get down to business ahead of Thursday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier

October 5th, 2016

The Caltex Socceroos got down to business in Jeddah today with the squad put through a gruelling 80-minute session in the afternoon heat ahead of Thursday (Friday morning AEDT) night’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Saudi Arabia.

Head Coach Ange Postecoglou lifted the intensity just two days out from the match, which is looming as a pivotal “six-pointer” against Saudi Arabia.

The Caltex Socceroos and Saudi Arabia both sit on top of group B with six points from two matches after Australia defeated Iraq (2-0) and the United Arab Emirates (1-0) while Saudi Arabia defeated Thailand (1-0) and Iraq (2-1).

Youngsters Craig Goodwin and James Jeggo joined the squad for the first time after continuing their impressive recent club form in Europe over the weekend while Tim Cahill, Aaron Mooy, Tom Rogic, Mile Jedinak, Mat Ryan, Mathew Leckie and Robbie Kruse all trained strongly.
