The Socceroos are bracing for a wounded Greece determined to compensate for their disastrous Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

Australian coach Ange Postecoglou expects a good-quality match-up with the country of his birth at ANZ Stadium on Saturday, when Australia will fine-tune for September's World Cup qualifiers against a Greece side still reeling from their failure to qualify for the European Championships.

"Coming off a disappointing campaign, their motivation will be pretty high to make sure they steady the ship and get ready for their World Cup qualifiers coming ahead," he said.
