Socceroo Matthew Leckie reckons Aussies can win

SOCCEROO Matthew Leckie reckons the Aussies could cause an upset against the Dutch on Thursday morning in Porto Alegre (2am AEST).

The German-based winger put in a top performance in the defeat against Chile and said if the Socceroos hit their straps they could definitely beat the Dutch.

"If we can get into wide areas and get good crosses in, any team will struggle to stop us," the 23-year-old said.

"We will take on Holland with our game plan and look to play like we did for 70 minutes against Chile."

Leckie said he was keen to show his shwoing in the first game was not a one-off.

"I was given the opportunity to start against Chile and now I need to be consistent for the next two games," he said.
