EXCLUSIVE: Socceroo Mile Jedinak only has his eyes on earning a place on the plane to Brazil 2014 - and won't be distracted by any talk of getting revenge over Japan next month.
The Blue Samurai defeated Australia in the final of the Asian Cup last year and the two sides will clash again next month in a vital World Cup qualifier in Brisbane.
But Jedinak says the squad will only be looking to the future and qualifying for Brazil rather than worrying about settling old scores with their biggest local rival.
"I'm really looking forward to the Socceroo games next month," Jedinak told au.fourfourtwo.com. "It has my full and undivided attention.
"It will be good to have the warm up in Denmark and get the boys together and see everyone, then it's two crunch games for this last qualifying stage.
"Oman away - we know how went there last time so we kind of know what to expect and then it's a big game in Brisbane, Japan at home.
"We all know what Japan can do and how they can play. For both of those games, we're going to have to be at our best to get the points.
"A lot has changed since the Asian Cup. For me personally, I don't feel like it is a revenge game. I'd rather just get the points and worry about that afterwards.
"I think a lot of the boys think the same way as me - it's a new tournament. We've moved on. It was disappointing to lose to them, don't get me wrong. But we've moved on .
"We put that loss behind us pretty much as soon as that game was over. You need that to progress and I think we'll treat it as an important game which it is.
"We want to get to the ultimate stage which is at the World Cup so hopefully we can achieve that in June."
This final round of World Cup qualifiers - which will see the top two from Australia's group earn instant qualification to Brazil - marks the halfway point in Socceroo coach Holger Osieck's reign.
Since taking over from Pim Verbeek, Osieck has steered the squad to the Asian Cup final and cruised through the last qualifying group stage with only a couple of hiccups along the way.
His reign has also seen the integration of more youngsters and A-League players and a more attacking mindset than Verbeek's conservative approach, and Jedinak is delighted with the way things are going under the German.
"I have a lot of respect and admiration for the way Holger has come in and managed the team," he said.
"The team harmony has always been good but it's as good as ever. The integration of certain players and new players has been fantastic and as seamless as possible.
"The camps have a real nice feel, and he's got his different coaching methods to what I've previously had in the Australian system but it's come like a breath of fresh air because it's good to stimulate your mind as well.
"As a footballer you can;t ask for more than that and I think the job he's done has been fanastic.
"I'm just looking forwward to continuing the relationship with him."
