FIFA World Cup: We can upset Netherlands, says Australia's Leckie

Porto Alegre: Australia forward Mathew Leckie believes his side can become the latest to cause an upset at the World Cup on Wednesday when they face a Netherlands team fresh from hammering defending champions Spain 5-1.

The Socceroos desperately need to take something from the game if they are to match their run to the last 16 from 2006 after going down 3-1 to Chile in their opening game.

However, Leckie thinks they showed enough in that game after going down 2-0 inside the first 15 minutes to suggest they can cause the Dutch problems.

"I'm sure Chile didn't expect such a hard game as what they got and Holland, obviously they've now seen that game and they'll probably review it as well.

"But we'll definitely hit them in areas they won't expect and hopefully we can be clinical in the opportunities that we get and we can put a few goals away," he said.

"We'll go out there with our game plan and hopefully we can play as well as we did for that 70 minutes against Chile and I think we'll definitely have our opportunities to win."
