Read moreThe Socceroos are aiming to win their fourth World Cup, after beating Argentina and Argentina again in the last three matches.
Chile has been drawn in Group D with Italy, South Korea and Japan, but the Socceroo squad is expected to play their first game against Chile on Friday.
Ahead of the match, the Socceros are aiming for a record crowd of more than 3 million to see them beat Chile.
“It’s not the biggest stadium, but it’s going to be huge,” Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou told reporters after the match.
The Socceros have a chance to win it after winning the last two matches, with their victory over Argentina last month being their most convincing performance.
But Chile, coached by former Socceroos defender and now coach of Australia’s Socceroos, Carlos Alberto, have played a lot of games in the second tier of Chilean football.
Chiles fans have been excited for the game.
Chile have never won the World Cup in Chile, and the only other time they did so was in 1966, when they defeated England 4-1 in the World Championship.
But Postecoglou is hoping the Soccerones can show their true colours.
“The players know what they’re about,” he said.
“They’re not arrogant or cocky.
They know what it takes to win.”
Chile are a very good team.
They are going to fight hard, they’re going to compete.
“Chile, who won their opening game 2-0 over the Soccermans, were beaten 3-1 by Japan on Saturday, their first defeat in seven matches.
They have only won one game against the Socceroes since their return to international competition.
Chill out for a good game for the Socceron, and it’s a good chance for them to show their fans they are a team to watch.
More to come.
