Spiranovic out of Socceroos' WC qualifiers

  • Spiranovic out of Socceroos' WC qualifiers

The Socceroos have been dealt a blow ahead of their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh, with defender Matthew Spiranovic ruled out with a calf injury.

Spiranovic, who plays for Chinese Super League outfit Hangzhou Greentown, is one of coach Ange Postecoglou's first-choice centrebacks and the team's defensive backbone.

With Postecoglou deciding not to replace the 27-year-old, it will open up an opportunity for Alex Wilkinson or Trent Sainsbury to join likely starter Bailey Wright in central defence.
