Wright in Russia for Confederations Cup

Bailey Wright has arrived in Russia with Australia for the 2017 Confederations Cup.

The 24-year-old is part of the Socceroos squad for the eight-team tournament, being held a year before the World Cup.

Australia have been drawn in the same group as Germany, Chile and Cameroon.

They face world champions Germany in their first match on Monday (June 19th), before tackling African Cup of Nations winners Cameroon three days later.

The final group encounter will be played on June 25th against Chile, the reigning Copa America champions.

The top two teams from the group will qualify for the semi-finals, where they will meet one of Russia, New Zealand, Portugal or Mexico.

Wright has ten caps for his country.
