Caltex Socceroos right back Josh Risdon has declared everyone is desperate to impress coach Bert van Marwijk before the 27-man squad gets cut to 23 on Sunday.
With just one lead -up game before four players learn their fate – against the Czech Republic on Friday night, 7pm WST – the West Australian and his teammates have been pushing each other to the limits in training in a bid to earn a ticket to the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
“The squad is going to be cut down and I think that shows in training,” Risdon told socceroos.com.au.
“The intensity that everyone is willing to put in – it’s 110 percent – and it will be massive for whoever gets a chance [against the Czech Republic] to put their best foot forward to make sure they’re there in Russia.”
"It will be massive."The Czech Republic match could make or break Caltex Socceroos' FIFA World Cup dreams.
