After a dismal show at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, the Socceroos start their preparation for next big tournament, the Asian Cup in 2019 with optimism under new head-coach Graham Arnold.
Australia failed to win a game at the World Cup eventually finishing at the bottom of their group.
The pre-form leading to the tournament was also one of the worst in their history with the team particularly failing to post results away from home.
Kuwait is under FIFA sanction and eventually got expelled from 2019 Asia Cup. Their competitive match participation is thus limited and last seen at the Gulf Cup where they failed to impressed and did not got beyond the group stage.
Overall, the team is sailing on turbulent waters with just 1 win coming from the last 14 matches in all competitions including friendlies and qualifiers.
The Blues are also starting a new chapter this month with Croatian football manager Romeo Jozak calling the shots from the sidelines.
