The coming year has never looked better for the Socceroos or the Australian Men’s Football Team. This FIFA World Cup 2022 team is headed for the group stages after a lengthy battle to secure a place in Qatar. It also coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Men’s National Team’s first match.
There simply is no rest for the team, or as the rundown of schedules for their 2022 goes. They’re one of the busiest teams in the AFC group, it appears, with round 3 of their FIFA World Cup 2022 fixtures going like this: there are matches against Vietnam, Japan, Oman, and Saudi Arabia up for them.
Australia’s Road to Qatar
As it stands, the games against the aforementioned countries will commence on January 27, February 1, March 24, and March 29. Each of the matches, starting with Vietnam, are crucial to Australia’s campaign to successfully travel on the Road to Qatar. It all starts in the Melbourne Stadium.
Currently, the team are in the third place of Group B for qualification to Qatar. There is a harder road to the World Cup—that’s the play-offs for the World Cup. The Asian Playoffs are scheduled in Jun this year, with the single-leg rounds being played on June 13 and 14.
How Things are Looking at the Asian Qualifiers
As it stands, the group that Asia is sending into the World Cup is strong. Group A has Iran and South Korea leading the way. Group B—where Australia is bunched—has Saudi Arabia leading, with the Socceroos having a good chance to catch up to the Samurai Blues. This should be good odds to play with for 12BET online sports betting fans.
The rest of the field in Group A has a better chance of catching up than in Group B. While Iraq and South Korea are strong opponents, the bottom teams of Group A have a chance to squeak through thanks to the Playoffs. In contrast, Group B’s teams are effectively out of the running.
What the Socceroos Stand to Collect at the WCQ 2022
Once past the qualifiers, no doubt Australia will be looking to post interesting football live scores in the World Cup itself. It will be their fifth consecutive World Cup grouping that they will play in. That in itself is already a lofty goal, whereas history will judge them for their multiple attempts at making it to the World Cup’s group stages.
