Not even the World Champions could beat us on their home turf.
That may not make us the number one team in the FIFA rankings but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced the Socceroos at $34 to force their way into unchartered territory and get into the top ten by the end of 2015.
Australia’s 2-all draw with Germany is certain to lift us higher than our current ranking of 65, and we’re a $1.80 chance to end up somewhere in the top 50, or $10 to finish the year in the top 20.
“We’re the best team in Asia and gave the World Cup holders an almighty scare in front of their home fans. On form, this side deserved to be deep within the top 50 in the FIFA rankings,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
The Socceroos are a $1.20 chance to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
