AUS vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush Presents to you the Australia vs England FIH Pro League Best Dream 11 Team.
Tradition has it that when the men’s and women’s teams from Great Britain are in action on the same day, a double loss is often on the table. And today is another feasible match-up to keep the spree intact with Great Britain facing table toppers Australia, a side who have gone five matches unbeaten.
For Australia, this edition of the FIH Pro League was not so much about advancing from the tournament but about establishing themselves as one of the main contenders for Olympic glory. They’ve managed to ease ahead of world champions, hammering down first place with 22 points from 27 possible ones.
Both the teams are heading into this clash with the one goal deciding their fortunes the last time around. While Australia saw a scoreline in favour of 2-1 given them a win against Netherlands the last time around, for Great Britain a 4-3 defeat against Germany dashed water on their chances of displacing Argentina in fourth position.
Despite having consolidated a semi-final berth, Australia have been completely relentless. They want to get things completely right before they move onto the knock-out stages and Great Britain shouldn’t expect even the slightest bit of mercy for them on Sunday.
With just one win in their previous 5 matches, the equation doesn’t make for pleasant reading for Great Britain. They always come up with goals but it’s the backline which has failed to come good for them, collapsing under rampage from the opposition. This is a clash which will be very close and tight with goals guaranteed and Australia pulling through another win at the end.

With both sides averaging over two goals per match, this is a facet where we dong see consummate success coming for us from. We’ll be accounting just the 3 defenders for us, the two from Australia and the lone pick from England.

While Jeremy has been a quintessential figure in the backline since the onset of the tournament, Dawson has been a new revelation, someone who has grabbed the opportunity accorded to him with both hands. Brendan Creed is going to represent Great Britain.
