Soccer-Australia coach Postecoglou to step down - report

MELBOURNE, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Australia coach Ange Postecoglou will step down after the intercontinental World Cup playoff in November, local media reported on Wednesday.

Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper, citing an unnamed source, said Postecoglou would step down regardless of whether the Socceroos win or lose their two-leg playoff against the fourth-placed side in North, Central and Caribbean qualifiying.

A spokesman from Football Federation Australia said the governing body would issue a statement on the coaching situation but was unable to provide immediate comment.

Australia defeated Syria 2-1 after extra time in Sydney on Tuesday to move into the intercontinental playoff for next year’s finals in Russia. (Reporting by Ian Ransom; Editing by Nick Mulvenney)
