He doesn't say a lot, he just gets on with it. Aggressive, hard, committed and determined, his first intervention in the game against France was a thumping header in the second minute when he outmuscled Paul Pogba, letting the Frenchman know in no uncertain terms that if he wanted to invade Jedinak's territory he was going to be in for a battle.

Tim Cahill may be the veteran of the Socceroos at the ripe old age of 38 but he's a babe in the woods compared to the oldest player in the tournament, Egypt's skipper Essam el-Hadary. The 150-cap goalkeeper will make history as not only oldest player in the finals but the oldest player to ever take part in the tournament. At 45, he will overtake Colombian 14

Canberra cycling star Michael Matthews will put his green jersey defence aside to help Team Sunweb leader Tom Dumoulin chase a yellow one instead.

6 June 2018 6:43 AM Jeff Horn's camp fire back at 'crap' headbutt barbs

But Daniels says the notion Horn leads with his head to damage rivals is preposterous - especially given the Australia's propensity to being split open. "Despite all the crap you see on social media, Jeff doesn’t lead with his head," Daniels said. "Jeff doesn’t want head clashes.
