Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Australia will look to climb to automatic qualification places when they take on Oman at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex on Tuesday afternoon. Japan and Saudi Arabia go head to head at Saitama Stadium, meaning that a win over Oman could see Australia regain their spot in top two. A man to watch in the away team will be Celtic man Tom Rogic, who found the net in a 4-0 win over Vietnam, while in-form striker Jamie Maclaren should continue to lead the line for the Socceroos.
Oman, on the other hand, have slim chances of securing a top-three finish, and seeing that the visitors want this win more than the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on Graham Arnold’s charges. Both Al Hajri and AL Aghbari are pushing for a start, speaking of the home team.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Edwards):
Despite being born in Singapore on November 17, 1993, Ryan Edwards is eligible to represent Australia in international matches. The 175-cm-tall midfielder has 18 caps with Australia U-23 and it has to be noted that he played for the Socceroos at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Speaking of his club career, Edwards is a product of AIS, the high performance sports training institution from Australia, but in 2011 he was spotted by Reading scouts.
Ryan Edwards played for the Royals at senior level, making seven appearances for the club in the league. The Australian international whore Perth Glory (loan), St. Mirren (loan), Partick Thistle and Heart of Midlothian shirts as well before signing a deal with Burton Albion in 2019.
He made his debut with the Brewers in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances at both central and right midfield as well.
Highlighted Team (Australia):
Australia are a member of the Asian Football Confederation as they left the Oceania Football Confederation in 2006. The Socceroos made it to the World Cup finals for the first time back in 1974, but they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament in Germany. In 2006, though, the Australians did well to advance to the last 16 of the FIFA World Cup, but eventual champions Italy proved to be a big catch for Guus Hiddink’s troops.
Australia participated at the World Cup finals in 2010 and 2014 as well, but they failed to impress at the tournaments in South Africa and Brazil respectively. In 2015 the Socceroos won the Asian Cup trophy, with the team beating South Korea in the title game and that is regarded as the team’s biggest success.
Tim Cahill is considered one of the most famous footballers that played for Australia and it has to be noted that the former Premier League star scored his 48th goal for the Socceroos in a 1-0 win over UAE in September, 2016.
