2014 World Cup - Group B
18th June - KO: 5pm BST -
Porto Alegre

Australia and Netherlands lock horns at the Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre on Wednesday 18th June. The Netherlands took an emphatic three points from their opening 2014 World Cup Group B game beating Spain 5-1, whilst the Socceroos were beaten 3-1 by Chile on Friday.

Holland are the hot favourites to record all three points and will be expected to do so against an Australian side who are the lowest ranked country in the competition. Louis van Gaal’s squad is brimming with talent, and the likes of Arjen Robben, Robin Van Persie and Wesley Sneijder have the potential to run riot in Porto Alegre.

However, it is worth remembering that the Dutch have in fact never beaten Australia in three meetings, meaning there could be a potential for a shock upset, as was the case back in 2008. The Socceroos stunned their opponents by coming from behind to win 2-1 in an international friendly, which remains their one and only victory over the Dutch. The teams have since played out a goalless draw back in 2009.

Key Players

Robbie Kruse (Australia) - Tim Cahill has been Australia's stand-out player for years but the dangerous striker Robbie Kruse is definitely a player to keep an eye on in the summer. The former Australian PFA Footballer of the Year is currently playing his football in Germany at Bayer Leverkusen and definitely has the game to cause defenders problems in South America.

Arjen Robben (Holland) - Robben is in the form of his life at the all-conquering Bayern Munich but, while he has won a plethora of honours at club level, both himself and his talented countrymen have yet to win anything on the international scene. The skilful winger will be looking to terrorise defences in Brazil and will be more than a handful for an Australian side with an occasionally fragile backline.
