Soccer fans Down Under have had to wait a long time for the next instalment of Australia and New Zealand’s rivalry with the round ball. Two goals from Josh Kennedy in June 2011 were the bedrock of a 3-0 Socceroos victory, and in the intervening 11 years neither side have faced each other. It should be spicy. Follow our guide for how to watch an Australia vs New Zealand live stream, worldwide.
All Aussie eyes will be on the World Cup in a couple of months and Socceroos boss Graham Arnold will be using these back-to-back friendlies against a close rival – both geographically and footballistically – to fine tune his final 26-man squad.
Expect Hellas Verona midfielder Ajdin Hrustic to be given the freedom to dictate play in Arnold’s formation, with former Huddersfield man Aaron Mooy, now of Celtic, to pull the strings behind him. Plus if Andrew Redmayne could be given a home repeat of the legendary Grey Wiggle which secured qualification against Peru in the play-off earlier this year, that’d be great.
New Zealand, meanwhile, will use this friendly as an opportunity to build for the next round of World Cup qualifying, after they fell agonisingly to Costa Rica in their own play-off round. Newcastle forward Chris Wood remains the All Whites’ principal goal threat. Here’s how to get an Australia vs New Zealand live stream and watch this international friendly fixture from anywhere.
