Australia coach Bert van Marwijk finalised his squad for upcoming friendlies in opposition to Norway and Colombia, with 4 potential debutants included.
Van Marwijk trimmed his squad from 29 to 26 because the uncapped quartet of Andrew Nabbout, Dimitri Petratos, Aleksandar Susnjar and Danny Vukovic retained their spots.
The three gamers to be lower from the preliminary checklist had been Mitchell Langerak, Alex Gersbach and Jamie Maclaren.
“I am looking forward to the chance to get together with the players and work with them for the first time and to get to know them,” Van Marwijk stated.
“We should be sure that we get the utmost attainable out of the subsequent two weeks in camp, as a result of our time is proscribed.

“Our pleasant matches in opposition to Norway and Colombia can be necessary, however the focus, dedication and software of all of the gamers, coaches and workers from day one till the second we depart London can be essential.
“We need to ensure that we use the time that we have together wisely so that we advance our preparations for Russia.”
Feyenoord goalkeeper Brad Jones and Sydney FC midfielder Josh Brillante might make their first Socceroos appearances since 2014.
The Socceroos face Norway in Oslo March 23 earlier than taking over Colombia in London 4 days later.
