DOHA: Socceroos defender Milos Degenek said the sky is the limit for what the team can achieve, citing previous underdog stories as inspiration.

“Leicester City won the Premier League four or five years ago, anything’s possible. Croatia went to the final of the World Cup,” he told reporters.

“Anything’s possible. And in the end, these beautiful football stories are the ones that are written in these situations and these moments. It’s these things that define a certain generation, or define you as a person.”

The enormity of their achievements are already clear to see from the outside, but Degenek said it’s unlikely it will sink in anytime soon.

“I think this is something that probably none of us will understand what happened until we get home, whether that’s after the final or whenever.”

Australia won’t have much down time, however, with the round of 16 game just around the corner on Sunday morning at 6am (AEDT).

“In a few days it’s a new game and we have to recover – this moment’s very beautiful for us, you guys are happy and proud, and lets be honest, none of you expected that – but that’s the thing about football and about this group, we believed from day one that this was possible,” Degenek said.

The Socceroos will wait and see who they play, but are ready for any of Argentina, Saudi Arabia or Poland.

“You obviously care to a certain point who you play, but it’s 11 against 11. It’s football, anything can happen.”
