I just lifted this straight from Tribal Football but the format shows what's going on for Australia in the tournament really well.

Australia has had a few lead up matches mostly sticking to the 4-2-3-1 or a slight variation that all our national sides play these days but the make up of the final first team is still not really clear. I'm not going to read into friendly results at all and really can't wait for the first game against the Czechs tonight.

I love these international youth tournaments. The unpredictability and just seeing the new, young talent coming through is great.

Keep your eye out for the post match analysis I will be doing.
