It was the backup goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne who saved the day on penalties for the Socceroos as they defeated Peru penalties in a highly entertaining contest with backup goalkeeper Graham Arnold.

At the finals, Australia’s group includes two familiar opponents: Denmark and France, the current reigning champions, both of which were drawn against them last year in the group stage.

Currently, it has been announced that the Qatar World Cup will feature 26-player squads, which will be a change from the usual 23-player squad format.

How many players are Australia allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?

For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.

When will the final Australia Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?

It is the first time ever that the World Cup will be held at the end of the year, taking place from November 21 through December 18.

As of now, Australia has just two games scheduled between now and the beginning of the tournament: a friendly double-header against New Zealand at home and away in September.

This will help Arnold fine-tune his final squad, which is usually announced around six weeks before the tournament begins, based on the results of these encounters.

As a result of club football being played closer to the time of the World Cup than normal, that may change in the future.

Who will make the final Australia Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?

The following players are expected to be dead certs for the final Australian squad if they do not suffer any injuries or bans before the match.

A leading player in the Socceroos’ squad is the captain and first-choice goalkeeper Mat Ryan, formerly of Brighton and Arsenal, and now with Real Sociedad, who has played for the team in the previous two World Cups, and attacking midfielder Ajdin Hrustic, a Europa League winner with Eintracht Frankfurt last season and one of the team’s most talented players.

The club also includes experienced campaigners such as center-back Trent Sainsbury, former Huddersfield and Brighton midfielder Aaron Mooy, and versatile forward Mathew Leckie, just to name a few.

For the first time, Cadiz winger Awer Mabil and Hearts right-back Nathaniel Atkinson will be among those hoping to make an impact on one of the biggest stages in football. Atkinson, who only earned his first cap in March, will be hoping to take advantage of this opportunity.
