Australia team was so strong. There was no chance to escape the goal from the Australian keeper as he had maintained 2 clean-sheets in the last 5 games. So, selecting him is the best choice.
Take more defenders from the Australian team as a whenever midfielder from the Germany team, defenders from Australian who are tough and robust will have a chance to make more tackles. Also, the Australian team will have a chance of having more possession.
To create a balanced we have take midfielders equally from either side. More midfielders from the Australian team will be the safe pick because of having more possession when compared to Germany’s midfielders.
Obviously, we called the players from the Australian attackers. Try to take more forward players from the Australian as they have maintained 2 clean-sheets in the last 5 games. Also, they are scoring on avg of 2+ goals per game.
