Australia vs New Zealand Lineups & Team News
Despite Craig Goodwin’s presence on the pitch at Wembley Stadium, Socceroos’ attack seemed toothless. England deservedly pipped Australia 1-0 after Ollie Watkins scored in the 57th minute of the game, but we believe that coach Graham Arnold’s boys will be eager to prove our Australia vs New Zealand predictions right by defeating the symbolic visitor.
Predicted lineup – Ryan (GK), Burgess, Rowles, Souttar, Strain, Baccus, Irvine, Goodwin, Boyle, Metcalfe & Duke
New Zealand haven’t won a game since the 26th of March when China got defeated 2-1. The results that followed were a 4-1 loss against Sweden and a 1-1 tie against DR Congo. The match against the African side was played on the 13th of October, and it showed why we picked Arnold’s boys as favorites in our Australia vs New Zealand prediction.
Predicted lineup – Sail (GK), Cacace, Boxall, Tuiloma, Payne, Garbett, Bell, Stamenic, Just, Waine & McCowatt
Player to Watch: Mathew Ryan
Goalkeeper-in-chief Mathew Ryan is the player to watch in our Australia vs New Zealand prediction, as he came close to recording an impressive clean sheet at Wembley Stadium a couple of days ago. Sure, it was only an international friendly, and many of England’s stars couldn’t make it for this match, but we should give credit where it’s due by saying that Mathew made some fantastic saves to keep Australia in the game. Surely, he’ll be a starter for coach Arnold in the match against New Zealand as well.
