70,000 are expected to flock ANZ Stadium in Sydney to witness the exciting clash on Sunday and even though the Socceroos have qualified for the next phase of the World Cup qualification process, this will by no means be seen as friendly encounter by both sides.
China, who had Serbian coach Vladimir Petrovic present as well as Assistant coaches Wang Baoshan, Ou Chuliang and Zelkjo Boljevic at the VSP headquarters, will be looking towards winning back some pride after what has been a disastrous World Cup qualifying campaign for the proud nation.
Charlton Athletic midfielder Zheng Zhi will spearhead the Chinese attack as they go in search for their first victory of the campaign having drawn three times and losing twice which has unfortunately ended their dream of playing in South Africa in 2010.
It?s all about building a new team for the future as the majority of the squad has been made up of many up and coming Chinese football stars who will represent their country in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Special credit must go to Valentine Sports Park Manager Duncan Sharpe and his team for keeping the pitch in such a professional manner.
