Football Federation Australia (FFA) confirmed the appointment of Van Marwijk, who coach the Netherlands to the World Cup final in 2010, on Wednesday.

FFA Chairman Steven Lowy said the Dutch coach?s experience was the perfect blend for the Socceroos? Russian campaign.

?This is a great result for Australian football,? said Lowy.

?Bert Van Marwijk is world class. He took the Netherlands to the World Cup Final in 2010, he led the Saudi Arabian team to qualify directly for this year?s finals and most importantly, he knows a lot about our team and how they play because he studied them closely as an opposition manager in the same group.

"These experiences make him a compelling choice.?

Lowy paid tribute to Ange Postecoglou, the support staff and especially the players for achieving qualification.

?We now go to Russia with a battle-hardened group of players and support staff who made it to the finals by the toughest road possible.

"In Bert Van Marwijk we have a manager who can achieve great things with this team. And we will ensure they have the resources necessary to give them the highest level of preparation.?

FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop agreed terms with the former Netherlands national team coach in Amsterdam.

Speaking from Amsterdam, Gallop said: ?Bert was our preferred candidate to take the Socceroos to the World Cup so we are delighted to have secured his services.

?We went through a thorough and disciplined process and used internal and external experts to build up a profile of the person who would be the best fit for the task in Russia. We had a number of outstanding coaches very interested in the role but Bert was at the top of our shortlist.?

Van Marwijk said he was honoured to be given the responsibility of taking the Socceroos to their fourth consecutive FIFA World Cup Finals.

With uncertainty continuing to shroud the identity of Australia?s next coach, Dutchman Bert Van Marwijk would be a judicious choice to lead the Socceroos to Russia.
?I know a lot about the players and how the team has been playing after coaching against them for the two World Cup qualifiers, in 2016 and in June last year.

?I have also been impressed by the national team set-up that the FFA has developed over the past few years.

?I want to thank Steven Lowy, David Gallop and (FFA?s Head of National Performance) Luke Casserly for the confidence they have shown in me.

?My response to them has been that we are not going to Russia just to be competitive. I want to win our matches.?

Arrangements for the Head Coach role of the Caltex Socceroos after the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be announced in the near future.

Thoughts? If he coaches us to play like hack-happy Holland in 2010 I won't be too impressed... Can't forget Van Bommel and de Jong trying to cut people in half yet somehow escaping sanction...

He did really well with Saudi Arabia so hopefully he can identify our strengths quickly and also minimize our weaknesses..

I won't pay too much attention to his previous tenures prior to his Saudi Arabia gig. Managers evolve and adapt.

One thing is for sure. He has pedigree and knows how to deal with footballers at the top level.
A champion is one who gets up when he can't.

I don?t care how we play as long as we get out of the group.

Hopefully he will rub out all the crazy Ange methods within a couple of friendlies, such as:

1. Three at the back
2. The attack at all costs and regardless of situations mentality
3. The crazy play out from the back
4. Playing the same style regardless of opponents
5. The mindless ticky tacka across the back

If he puts a couple of hard men in the middle - so be it - as long as they don?t get red cards.

Wouldn?t it be delicious, if we get out of the group, while at about the same time Ange?s philosophy is rejected in Japan.
