Socceroos boss Postecoglou keeping World Cup options open

Ange Postecoglou says there is not one secure spot in his Australia squad for next year’s World Cup.

Ange Postecoglou says there is not one secure spot in his Australia squad for next year’s World Cup.

The Socceroos boss will have the unenviable task of picking a squad of 23 players for Brazil 2014, with the tournament kicking off in June, but he says he has plenty of time to cast his eye over those Aussies striving to win a place on his roster.

"I reckon just me at this stage, there's still 23 up for grabs," he said.

"The Costa Rica camp certainly gave me a decent idea of what I want it (the squad) to look like, there's still a lot of football to be played.

"Form and health and fitness are going to be paramount.

"I'm casting the net wide and narrowing it from there rather than the other way around."

Ahead of the World Cup, which sees Australia drawn with reigning champions Spain, runners-up Holland and Chile, Postecoglou added: "There's plenty to do, that's one thing that did dawn on me coming back (from the draw in Brazil).

"We don't have a lot of games but we certainly have a lot to do."
