«We saw the match of Russian national team. The Russians looked strong. They play at home, it helps the team. They had to start the tournament off on the right foot and they did well. It will be something to fight in the confederations Cup. I think the fight will be in both groups, but we came here to play against the best,» said Postecoglou at a press conference.

«Let’s debunk another myth — said Postecoglou. — Youth teams – it’s not all in relation to tomorrow’s match. We’ll see who the lineup will be younger. Not all defined. We take the field against the world Champions, a team that has come a long way. This is a huge test for us. I don’t want to dwell who are younger and who is older. At the moment the youth team of Germany – a common myth that you can dispel».
