The PFA congratulates all players in the new look Socceroos training squad on their selection.

The squad consists of an exciting mix of Australian based up and coming A-League stars together with experienced football leaders in Kevin Muscat, Stan Lazaridis and Steve Corica.

With many of Australia’s World Cup stars unavailable due to the timing of the match, and their club’s pre-season commitments, it provides a fantastic opportunity for these 22 Australian based players to make their case for match time against Kuwait in Sydney on 16 August, together with more regular selection in the Socceroos line-up.
