#AceNewsDesk – Where to watch the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in Australia: Socceroos group standings, matchday schedule and results
The top two teams from each of the eight groups advance to the knockout stages of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Take a look at all the groups’ standings and their upcoming matches and results, and find out where to watch the Socceroos’ matches.
The Socceroos’ group: Let’s start (not alphabetically) with Australia in Group D: As the Socceroos counted down to their World Cup opener against France, coach Graham Arnold had a “Master Mind” behind the scenes helping him motivate the team but eventually lost 4-1
It wasn’t always in that arrangement of letters, but it was there. Whether it was the “Aussie DNA” or reference to the “spirit” or “identity” of the Socceroos, this intangible thing was there, laid down like mortar beneath the lines of every player and staff member who was asked about how Australia could surpass the potentially unsurpassable: the reigning World Cup champions.
“We’ve built the belief and the energy and the focus,” coach Graham Arnold said.
“Over the last week, since we’ve been in camp, we’ve been working hard on building that belief.”
Belief is a useful tool for an underdog side to lean into the intangibles when the tangibles are so heavily stacked against you.
This was a France squad that, despite a string of injuries to key players, was still fourth in the world and able to field a starting XI containing regulars at the world’s biggest clubs.
When Ballon D’Or winner and centre-forward Karim Benzema withdrew from the team late, they simply started the country’s now equal-highest goal-scorer, Olivier Giroud, instead.
When they lost their starting left back, Lucas Hernandez, early in the first half, they simply replaced him with another Hernandez brother – Theo this time – who assisted France’s equaliser and was world-class throughout.
When the creative force of Paul Pogba was unavailable, they simply moved Antoine Griezmann slightly in-field and started Ousmane Dembélé out wide; the Barcelona winger mirroring the untouchable Kylian Mbappé on the other side of the field.
But this World Cup has already witnessed how belief can manifest into something tangible, as when Saudi Arabia – ranked 52nd in the world – defeated Argentina earlier in the day: a team that sat 50 places above them, which contained perhaps the game’s greatest ever player, and who hadn’t lost a game in almost three years. It was enough to make you believe in castles in the sky.

And in the opening 20 minutes of Wednesday morning’s game, the Socceroos had all of us crossing the drawbridge.
They may not have had much of the ball, but they didn’t need it to do what they wanted. Settling into two tight defensive lines, and with the speed of Mat Leckie and Craig Goodwin on either flank, Australia’s plan was to lure France out from the safety of their own doorway before sticking the knife in sideways.
It took just eight minutes to do so. A long, raking pass by the towering Harry Souttar found Leckie on the right wing, whose delicate in-field touch sent his opponent sprawling in the grass.
