Federici's Australia touch down in South Africa

Federici's Australia touch down in South Africa

Here at Vital Reading we will be following Australia throughout this summer's World Cup, and the Aussie's have touched down in South Africa. They arrived late on Wednesday night, and they were the 1st of the 32 teams to arrive and will officially be welcomed to the country on Thursday by the Australian High Commissioner in South Africa.


They will be based in suburban Johannesburg up until a week before the tournament, when they will move to Kloofzicht Lodge and train at the Ruimsig Stadium for the duration of the tournament.


Federici's coach Pim Verbeek spoke on the teams arrival in South Africa, 'The players will have to get used to the altitude and the few warm-up matches will help us a lot in achieving this. When playing in the World Cup, you have to prepare yourself and make sure the team is in good condition.'


The Royals keeper will hope to be involved in the Socceroo's next match on 1st June, when they take on Denmark.
