Top world leagues make Socceroos WC threat

  • Top world leagues make Socceroos WC threat

Skipper Mile Jedinak and goalkeeper Mat Ryan will rejoin the Socceroos for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh, but Luke Brattan and Tarek Elrich have been dropped.

Neither Jedinak nor Ryan have played for Australia since June's opening qualifier against Kyrgyzstan in Bishkek, missing the team's qualifying victories over Bangladesh and Tajikistan and defeat to Jordan.

Uncapped Perth defender Josh Risdon was also called up into coach Ange Postecoglou's 23-man squad for the match against Kyrgyzstan in Canberra on November 12 and the clash with Bangladesh in Dhaka on November 17.
