FINALS / QUALIFYING CAMPAIGNS
FIRST FWC: 1974 LAST FWC: 2014
BEST ACHIEVEMENT: Round of 16 2006
Bert van Marwijk was appointed Australia coach in January, having assumed the reins from Ange Postecoglou who resigned after the Socceroos qualified in November 2017. The 65-year-old Van Marwijk has significant experience, most notably leading his native Netherlands to the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. He also helped Saudi Arabia reach Russia 2018 ending their 12-year World Cup drought.
The evergreen Australian forward is seemingly getting better with age, having netted 11 goals on the road to Russia, including several trademark headers. Scorer of one of the most spectacular goals of Brazil 2014, Cahill could become one of the few players to score at four World Cups.
