  • Postecoglou recalls key Socceroos trio

Trent Sainsbury, James Troisi and Tomi Juric have been named in Australia's 23-man squad for next month's World Cup qualifier against Jordan.

Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou on Wednesday included the trio - missing from the last round of qualifiers due to injury - for their toughest Group B assignment, a clash in Amman on October 8.

Skipper Mile Jedinak was left out, the Crystal Palace midfielder struggling for game time in the English Premier League.

Australia sit top of the group with three wins from as many games, followed by Jordan two points back.

"It is a sign of the depth we are creating that we bring these three guys back into the squad for the Jordan game," Postecoglou said.

"All three played a major part in our Asian Cup success and after finding fitness and regular club football they are ready to come back in."
