FC Utrecht's Oar says performance outweighs scoreline as Australia get set for Brazil

Australian young gun Tommy Oar suggests the team's performance is more important than the score in this weekend's friendly meeting with Brazil.

The FC Utrecht winger and his Socceroos teammates are preparing to take on A Selecao in Brasilia on Saturday (Sunday 5:00am AEST) and according to Oar, all that is required is to put in a solid shift.

"Obviously everybody wants to win and do as well as they can against opposition like Brazil," the 21-year old said.

"But I think the most important thing for us is the performance, at the end of the day it is a friendly game and we are using it to prepare for the World Cup.

"There is nothing really for us to lose, everybody expects Brazil to win easily.

"We are confident… I guess if we perform to our capabilities we can maybe turn a few heads."
