Soccer-Australia confirm Postecoglou as new Socceroos coach

SYDNEY, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Ange Postecoglou was confirmed as the new coach of Australia's national soccer team by Football Federation Australia (FFA) on Wednesday.

The Australian replaces German Holger Osieck, who was sacked earlier this month after successive 6-0 defeats to Brazil and France despite leading the Socceroos to qualification for next year's World Cup finals. (Reporting by Nick Mulvenney, editing by Ian Ransom)
