Soccer round up: Socceroos over Greece

The Socceroos got a win over Euro champions Greece 1-0 in their friendly. But it was a win that left Guus Hiddink dissatisfied with the Socceroos preparation for the World Cup. The intensity in the Oz squad was missing in the second half, and Hiddink voiced his frustration on his team’s performance.
“Now I’m going to focus on improvements in our game before we face the Japanese. We have got to get more physical strength and depth.”
The good news is that medio Tim Cahill’s rehab is on track for his injured knee for the Soceroos opening on June 12th in the WC. Harry Kewell is receiving physical therapy at Liverpool for his pulled groin. The Soceroos are now in Melbourne for their training camp.
