Ange expects Roos to lift against Greece

Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou is banking on the injection of a batch of fresh players to spark a lift in both tempo and intensity against Greece.

Asia-based trio Tim Cahill, Trent Sainsbury and Nathan Burns are amongst eight additions for the June 4 and 7 friendlies in Sydney and Melbourne after being absent for Saturday morning's (AEST) 2-1 loss to England.

"My expectations on our ability to play at a high tempo and high intensity for longer will be a lot higher, because all the players coming in all played this weekend and are in good physical condition," Postecoglou said on Monday.
