CURITIBA, Brazil (AP) -- Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said Monday's meaningless match against Spain offers his team an opportunity to build a reputation of being "feared" rather than one that can cause an upset.

In a news conference Sunday, Postecoglou said his team is motivated to secure Australia's third ever win at the World Cup in its fourth tournament.

He said "if we are to continue to improve and become the nation that we want to be, to be feared, we've got to start winning games."

Neither team can qualify for the knockout stages after losing their first two games against the Netherlands and Chile.

Neither team can train on the pitch on Sunday at the Arena da Baixada because it got cut up badly in Friday's match between Ecuador and Honduras.
