While an important step in clearing Stajcic 's name, Bosnich is adamant those responsible for his sacking must be held accountable. "For those who conspired and schemed to get Alen Stajcic out, you are disgusting," Bosnich said on Macquarie Sports Radio.

"You’ve got to make some tweaks, because if you don’t, on the evidence I’ve seen, they’re going to struggle to get past the group," Bosnich said on Fox Sports show Bill & Boz.

While an important step in clearing Stajcic 's name, Bosnich is adamant those responsible for his sacking must be held accountable. "For those who conspired and schemed to get Alen Stajcic out, you are disgusting," Bosnich said on Macquarie Sports Radio.

The former Matildas coach has been handed a formal apology after his controversial axing earlier this year.

"And if they don’t get past the group, there’s going to be hell to pay.

"Not only because of the fact of their performance, but because of everything that’s gone on in the last five months with the Alen Stajcic thing which has been an absolute debacle.

"And the apology that came out last week and really for anyone to say, including those at the FFA, that hasn’t had an effect on the girls is living in gaga land."

According to AAP, Football Federation Australia attempted to shutdown questions asked about the impact of Stajcic's sacking on the Matildas following the Italy loss.

While Stajcic's shadow does loom large over the side in France, Matildas veteran Lisa De Vanna is determined to see the side bounce back against Brazil.

"I guess now it's a big hurdle for us and we have to rise," De Vanna said.

"There's no bigger team to do that against than Brazil."

Australia take on Brazil on Friday morning and will play their final group game against Jamaica on June 19.
