Dynamo Moscow defender Wilkshire: Osieck has backing of Socceroos players

Luke Wilkshire insists the entire Socceroos playing group is behind manager Holger Osieck.

The German has come under fire following the 6-0 friendly loss to Brazil last month but ahead of Friday's (Saturday morning AEDT) clash with France in Paris, Dynamo Moscow defender Wilkshire suggests any talk regarding his potential sacking has certainly not emanated from the players who are fully behind the boss.

"I don't think that's ever been in question and the talk and suggestion, that's just the world of football," Wilkshire said.

"It's not a concern for us.

"We come into camp and every player who pulls on a green and gold jersey wants to perform for their country first and foremost, and for the team, for each other and for the coach.

"Everyone is 100 per cent behind him (Osieck) and the whole squad, we're all together in this."
