Australia to keep on attacking

The Socceroos opened their Asia Cup campaign with a 3-1 win over Kuwait,and Posotecoglou has spoken of his delight that his troops continued to push for more goals even after they had carved out an advantage.

And while this attack-minded football may result in his side failing to keep clean sheets, the tactician appears to be taking a 'however many you score we will score more' approach.

"I know it's not going to please the purists, but I'm happy to win 7-3, 8-3, if it means we're winning games of football and we're attacking," he said.

"That won't change, absolutely not while I'm in charge."

In the absence of regular captain Mile Jedinak, Tim Cahill will lead both the team and the attack in Tuesday's clash with Oman.

While much of the talk may be about Australia's attack, Cahill believes that careful attention must be paid to the Oman offence.

"Attacking-wise on transition, they are very good," he explained.

"We're definitely wary of the Omani team."
