Socceroos Fixtures World Cup 2022

Few teams capture the hearts of the soccer world quite like the famous Socceroos. Of course, the Aussie national squad has made it to Qatar for the 2022 edition of the World Cup. And it’s fair to say that loyal soccer fans in Australia are pretty excited. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let us remind you that the goal here is to discuss the Socceroos fixtures in Qatar – beginning in November with the group stage.

Socceroos Fixtures World Cup 2022

Since we don’t know which teams will play beyond this stage, however, this is the most important factor to focus on. And the group that the Socceroos have been placed in is Group D. This group involves the Socceroos, of course, as well as France, Denmark, and Tunisia. To be honest, this group isn’t quite as tough as others in the World Cup. So naturally, this provides the nation with the hope of reaching the knockout stage, which would be pretty epic, to say the least.

But to reach the knockout stage, there are a few Socceroos fixtures that will prove pivotal. As is the case with all groups in the World Cup, the Socceroos will play against each of the teams in their group one time. This means that there is just one opportunity against each of the three teams to pick up points. For that reason, we’d like to discuss these key fixtures while providing our own thoughts on which way the games might swing.

Breakdown of each of the Socceroos Fixtures in Qatar

The Socceroos will begin their campaign in Qatar on November 22nd against France. This is actually a couple of days after the World Cup begins, as this is set for November 20th. Anyway – this is when the dream will begin for the Socceroos, and as you can see, they are kicking things off against one of the best teams in the world. So, let’s discuss this particular fixture, as well as the other two right now:

France vs Australia

France is the reigning champion in World Cup soccer. They lifted the trophy in Russia back in 2018, and they are currently ranked 4 in the world according to the FIFA rankings. Needless to say, this is a pretty huge challenge for the Socceroos right off the bat. And while we would like to be hopeful here, it is unlikely that the Socceroos will secure a win. France has a team full of superstars, including guys like Mbappe, Griezmann, Pogba, Benzema, and many others. But there is one thing on the side of the Socceroos here.

That ‘thing’ is the fact that this is the opening game of the World Cup. So there will likely be some nerves in the French team, just as there will be in the Australian team. However, a key difference is that Australia has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But at the end of the day, France is one of the best in the world, and we expect that France will win this game.

Tunisia vs Australia

The second of the Socceroos fixtures in Qatar is where things start to get interesting. Tunisia is nowhere near as strong as France in soccer, and this gives the Aussies a huge chance to secure three points. While yes, Tunisia is still ranked 30th in the world (9 places higher than the Socceroos), they are a beatable team. And one thing we’d like to point out here is that Australia did beat a team ranked 20th in the world to qualify for the tournament! So it’s clear that the Socceroos have the capability to upset the best teams in the world.

Another interesting thing is that Tunisia is the only team that the Socceroos didn’t play against in the group stages of the 2018 World Cup. And as you may remember, the Socceroos finished last in the group in 2018 – not something that fans will recall fondly. Putting that fact aside, we actually believe that Australia will win here. They have enough talent to rattle the Tunisian team and they can certainly score goals against a relatively weak defence.

Australia vs Denmark

Referencing the 2018 World Cup once again, Denmark was the only team that Australia picked up points. But on paper, this is another very tough match compared with the previous Socceroos fixtures. Denmark is ranked number 10 in the world as per the FIFA rankings, and they are hugely experienced on the big stage. However, the Socceroos have actually recorded a win against Denmark in the past, which should give them some confidence.

With that said, it’s still going to be a big test to grab a win against Denmark in this game. And depending on how the group is set at this point, there could be enormous pressure on this match. Then again, that’s what the World Cup is all about – dealing with pressure and finding ways to win. But if we had to give a prediction for the game, we would go with a draw.
