4 overseas players back for Socceroos vs Oman
New York City-based Tim Cahill and Crystal Palace’s Mile Jedinak
are among four overseas-based players returning to the Australia
squad for its 2014 World Cup qualifying match against Oman in
Sydney on March 26.
Socceroos head coach Holger Osieck named a 23-player squad
Wednesday, also including Tommy Oar (FC Utrecht) and Tom Rogic
(Celtic). All four missed last month’s friendly against
Australia will be without captain Lucas Neill and Carl Valeri,
who are serving one-match suspensions for the accumulation of
yellow cards from previous matches.
The Socceroos are second in Group B in the final round of Asian
qualifying for Brazil in 2014, eight points behind Japan and only
edging Iraq and Oman on goal difference.
