Osieck demands more leadership from Socceroos skipper Neill

Australian national team boss Holger Osieck has demanded more leadership action from Lucas Neill.

The Socceroos are preparing for a vital World Cup qualifier with Iraq in Doha on Wednesday morning and Osieck wants an improved showing from Neill, and other veterans, following the shock 2-1 loss to Jordan last month.

"I don't want to single out anybody - not necessarily a link to one person," Osieck said.

"But I expect from him (Neill) to be a leader, to show he's the captain of the team, that he leads by example and will push his teammates to good performances."
