Middlesbrough skipper Rhys Williams suggests the Australian national team will employ a never-say-die attitude against France this weekend.

The Socceroos meet Les Bleus in Paris on Friday night (Saturday morning AEDT) and Williams is adamant that Holger Osieck's squad is ready to recover from the 6-0 demolition handed out by Brazil last month.

"The motto for Australia is that we never give up, and there were discussions after the game that we sort of let them take over a bit which isn't like us," Williams said.

"The boss has picked a good opposition now against France, it's a great opportunity to put things right."
