Already qualified for the 2014 World Cup Finals, Australia have named a strong squad ahead of this friendly, with the likes of former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill included. Lucas Neill, who spent 15 years in England with spells at Millwall, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United and Everton, will equal Peter Wilson’s record of 60 matches as Socceroos captain should he lead the side out against both France and Canada during the international break.
The last time the two sides met was in a 1994 World Cup qualifying play-off, which Australia eventually won in a penalty shootout to advance to a final play-off, where they lost to Argentina.
Tuesday will be Australia’s fifth appearance at the Cottage, having previously faced Jamaica, Denmark, New Zealand and Nigeria in SW6, whilst Canada will be playing on the famous turf for the first time.
