    Match Preview

    Following their first games of the 2014 World Cup, Australia and Netherlands will face off in Porto Alegre on June 18. With Australia the proverbial whipping boys of Group B, they will look to prove a point by upsetting the apple cart against a Netherlands side who will need to record a result to ensure they keep their qualification aspirations alive.

    While this will be the first time the two countries clash in a major international tournament, the Netherlands are yet to record a victory in their three previous friendly fixtures. A 1-1 draw in 2006 and a goalless tie in 2009 came either side of the Socceroos' victory in 2008 - as they came from a goal down to win 2-1 in Eindhoven.

    For those considering placing goalscorer bets on this game, Cahill has opened the scoring in two of Australia's last six games, on his way to three goals. On the other side, Van Persie's equisite record of five goals in six games sees him live up to his billing as Netherland's main scoring threat.
