CLOSE ATTENTION Socceroo Mathew Leckie tracks a run by Alex Sandro of Brazil

Australia will face Germany in a Confederations Cup, Group B soccer.

"Second half was better, we composed ourselves a little bit, we were smarter defensively and good with the ball".

Germany vs Australia will take place at 4pm on Monday, June 19.

"Who would expect it to be ideal?" Many of his players will experience new tactics, styles and challenges Loew said.

Much has been made of Joachim Low's decision to select a Germany squad lacking most of the country's star names for this trip to Russian Federation, with an emphasis on youth and fringe players a year out from their World Cup defence.

"If we have a free afternoon perhaps one or two of us will go over there", Germany midfielder Joshua Kimmich said.

"We lost our way after 60 minutes and need to work on retaining our stability, but a lot of things worked well".

The Socceroos qualified for the World Cup warm-up tournament by winning the Asian Cup in 2015 to be crowned Asian champions.

Lars Stindl had put Germany ahead before Celtic's Tom Rogic equalised.

Inevitably the focus on Germany has centered on its callow squad, containing only three world champions from 2014 while numerous established stars have been given a break.

The Leverkusen goalkeeper seemed to have taken care of Rogic's long-distance shot before inexplicably spilling the ball to the arriving Tomi Juric, who gleefully tapped home. Chile and Germany share top positions in the group, with three points each.

SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Being cranky and prickly is a badge of honor for Australia coach Ange Postecoglou. "Absolutely I thought we matched it with them for periods of the game and the character and resilience they showed is unquestionable".

On the other hand, Australia has come into the competition with an experienced squad which features Tim Cahill who is already on 97 caps for his country.

Germany's rawness wasn't obvious at all early in the game when a goal was created after only five minutes. There were debut worldwide goals for Julian Brandt, the 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen tyro, and for Amin Younes, part of the Ajax team who reached the Europa League final.

"It would have been easy to come out in the second 45 and chuck the towel in but we didn't do that".

"In any tournament the first game's pretty crucial", Postecoglou added.

The gulf in quality was clear, and yet the callow Germans discovered the perils of not killing off a game. Joachim Low has named a very unfamiliar team in his recent call-up with names like Mats Hummels and Manuel Neuer not featrured; and so the Australian's have a decent chance of finding the back of the net. Throw some interesting defenders like Antonio Rüdiger, Shkodran Mustafi, and Matthias Ginter into the mix, and seeing how this squad shakes out and plays will be a lot of fun.

Their joy lasted only three minutes with the Germans earning a penalty in the 44th. It's a great game for us, we're playing against the world champions.
