Australia commenced their third round of the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers with an emphatic 3-0 win against China.

The current Socceroos’ side is one of the best in history as they have won all of their last nine games, thus setting a new record.

Manager Graham Arnold has done an incredible job so far and he is likely to lead his troops to the World Cup for the fifth consecutive year.

Australia are the favourites to end up as the toppers of group B, with the second-best side in the same group, Japan suffering a narrow defeat in the opening game.

Possible line-ups

Matthew Ryan (GK); Aziz Behich, Trent Sainsbury, Harry Souttar, Ryan Strain; Aaron Mooy, Tom Rogic, Jackson Irvine; Adam Taggart, Martin Boyle, Awer Mabil


Vietnam were impressive throughout the second round of the World Cup qualifier but slumped to a heavy defeat against Saudi days ago.

They have got a massive task to topple the vibrant Australian side on Tuesday.

Possible line-ups

Bui, Do Duy Manh, Nguyen, Vu Van Thanh, Nguyen Tuan Anh, Hoang Duc, Trong Hoang, Phan Van Duc, Tien Linh, Quang Hai


Vietnam 0 – 4 Australia: the Socceroos are expected to continue their impressive streak in the upcoming games. Another big win could also be on the cards.
