The Socceroos will start a different right back in tonight’s clash with Tunisia with Nathaniel Atkinson unable to start with an ankle injury.

Atkinson was a notable omission from Australia’s light session this morning in Doha, and team officials have confirmed he hasn’t recovered from a knock suffered in Australia’s defeat to France on Tuesday.

Atkinson was given a tough time against arguably the best player on the planet, Kylian Mbappe, but on reflection analysis shows the 22 year-old wasn’t totally torn to shreds.

There were 14 one-on-one duels between Mbappe and Atkinson in the game, with Atkinson beaten on three occasions.
Socceroos coach Graham Arnold made a point of mentioning the youngster’s performance in a press briefing with Australian reporters yesterday.

“I just said to Nathaniel: you’re going to remember this for the rest of your life,” Arnold said.

“You’re going to sit there in 20 years time when you retire, with a beer in your hand, telling everyone how you played against one of the best players in the world.

“And you’re gonna show them two mistakes but ten things you did great. You’ve gotta look at the positives and what that kid’s gonna learn out of it.”

Arnold now has to choose between Thomas Deng, Milos Degenek and Fran Karacic to fill the right back vacancy.
Italy-based Fran Karacic will be charged with helping restore Australia’s leaky defence – which conceded four goals to a rampant French outfit.

Midfield star Ajdin Hrustic, who has recovered from his own ankle complaint, is another strong contender to be deployed into Arnold’s starting lineup for Saturday’s clash.

“He’s getting there, he trained well (on Friday) and he’s recovered well. Mentally and physically he’s in good shape,” Arnold said at his pre-match press conference.

“Tomorrow will be a very, very physical game – Tunisia like a physical game. We’ve got to match the physical aspect of it. But he’s in good shape.”

There could also be movement up front, with Mitchell Duke under pressure from fellow strikers Jamie Maclaren and Jason Cummings to hold his spot leading the line.

Arnold said he was loath to make too many changes, however.

“The boys have pulled up fantastically well. I don’t think there’ll be too many changes,” Arnold said.

“We’ve got to put our strongest line-up out there.
