The Dragons seek to return to the World Cup

China, meanwhile, have also won all four of their recent World Cup qualifiers and conceded just once as they finished second to Syria in Group A.
It’s been six years since Australia and China last faced off in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup Quarter-Finals. A tournament which the Socceroos went on to win and claim their first major trophy since moving to the Asian confederation.
China, who are ranked 71st in the FIFA world ranking, have only ever played at one World Cup in 2002 and are gradually making strides in their quest to return to the world's biggest stage.
China scored two more goals than the Socceroos in the previous round of qualification and they will be looking to pick up exactly where they left off.
1:48 PM18 days ago

Encouraging outlook

The match, which was originally scheduled to be played in Australia, takes place at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha as the Socceroos look to extend their unbeaten run in qualifying.
Australia have won their past eight matches – either side of an 18-month lay-off – and will be hopeful of building on that momentum in Qatar.
A top-two finish in the group will send Graham Arnold’s men straight to the World Cup Finals in Qatar next year, while a third-place finish means the Socceroos will be forced to go through the playoffs.

China News

Twenty-two-year-old Guo Tianyu, who has scored eight goals for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League this season, is expected to make his international debut for China, and Li has also called up other new young faces such as Xu Xin, Zhu Chenjie and Gao Zhunyi.

The Chinese Super League powerhouse Guangzhou FC has eight players listed in the squad, whilst star forward Wu Lei - who plays for Espanyol - is the only player from the top five European leagues.

Australia News

Aaron Mooy of Shanghai Port FC will finally be able to return to the Australia squad, after having been unavailable due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Celtic's Tom Rogic also returns after missing June's second round matches in Kuwait and this will mark the first time the pair have been part of the squad since 2019.

The ongoing restrictions in Australia mean that only one domestic-based player - Sydney FC's Rhyan Grant - has been included in the squad, which includes players dotted all over Europe and Asia.

Mathew Ryan will remain between the sticks, having just joined Real Sociedad, after a loan spell at Arsenal where he played just three games.

The China Soccer Team is the national representative of the People's Republic of China. It is controlled by the Chinese Football Association, which belongs to the AFC. That team was founded in 1924 and joined FIFA in 1931 until 1958, being reinstated in 1979.
It is an Asian soccer powerhouse, but it has never achieved the Asian Cup championship, losing the final in 1984 and 2004. Internationally it has not had good results either, having a very poor participation in the 2002 Soccer World Cup (it obtained the penultimate place) in his only participation in said competition.
The Chinese team represents mainland China; Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan have their own teams.

Known as the Socceroos (a term that mixes the words in English, soccer and kangaroo, like "soccer kangaroos"), Australia has participated in five World Cups: in 1974 and 2006, both held in Germany, 2010 in South Africa and 2014 in Brazil and lately achieving their classification to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

For many years, Australia led Oceania soccer by being a member of the Oceania Soccer Confederation (OFC) since its founding. In the tournaments organized by this confederation, Australia managed to win the OFC Nations Cup four times, achieving impressive results when competing against very low-level opponents, where only New Zealand appeared as a rival of any importance.
For this reason, Australia resigned from the OFC in 2006 and joined the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) that same year, as a way to participate in more competitive tournaments that allow its sporting development.
