Australia coach: “I’ve never coached to a draw in my life.”

Australia coach Graham Arnold has insisted that he won’t be changing his tactics before his team’s final Group D game, despite the possibility that a draw with Denmark could be enough to send his team into the last 16 of the World Cup. Arnold explained:

“It’s no different to every other game. I’ve never coached to draw in my life, so we’re not going to do that. Again, it’s about going out and being on the front foot like we were for 30 minutes against France and I feel for 60 minutes against Tunisia. That’s the message I’ve been driving to the boys… now it’s time for 90 percent or 100 percent against Denmark, and making sure we remove any sloppy mistakes… We’ve been doing something for four and a half years, the players know exactly what to do, and what my expectations are. I don’t think changing the wheel in one day is going to do anything tactically great, but what it will be doing is putting confusion into players’ brains and once you do that then you’re not going to get the best out of them.”
