Confederations Cup: Australian skipper says Cameroon is a unsafe opponent

AAMI Park is on the verge of being announced as the venue for the Socceroos v Thailand clash, which will be played just five days after Australia faces arch rival Japan away in the penultimate qualifier.

The Socceroos were 3-2 losers against the world champions in their first outing in Russian Federation.

Ange Postecoglou has left the door open for a serious selection shake-up as he seeks safe passage for the Socceroos to the Confederations Cup semi-finals.

"One lesson about the first game (against Germany) was that if anything we probably needed to concentrate more on ourselves than paying too much respect to the opposition".

"We can not allow so many mistakes against Chile and we need to be more efficient up front", said Bayern Munich's Kimmich, Germany's first-choice right-back at 22.

"We have a young team that needs time to mature".

"I watched the first game against Chile, they were sitting back and playing on the counter-attack and very, very direct and quick", Degenek said.

"They've got some very good individuals up front".

"We were all eager to fix [a few] structural things and look at the Cameroon guys and implement a plan that's going to beat them".

According FourFourTwo, Milligan praised the Indomitable Lions and said his team will need to press them from the kick off to secure victory in the do-or-die match.

"They're putting themselves out there and testing themselves as we want them to".

His replacement, RB Leipzig's Timo Werner, then hit the post in the second half and Wagner says the Germans must take their chances against Copa America winners Chile.

"I think we did fine".

Coach Ange Postecoglou is likely to ring the changes for the match - not necessarily due to poor performers, but to spare exhausted bodies.

Australia on the other hand were very good against Germany.

He said Australia were "100 per cent" still in the tournament, despite never progressing from their group at Federation Internationale de Football Association or AFC level when they've lost the opening game.

And the Asian Cup-winning coach could also flip his goalkeepers for a fifth successive game, bringing in Mitchell Langerak for Mat Ryan. "We're fit enough and strong enough to do it again", he said.

Broos's side will play their second Group B match in Saint Petersburg.

The Socceroos hoped to train as a full squad at the match stadium on Wednesday, but have been blocked as the pitch requires rest.
