Ange unfazed over missing Socceroos stars

  • Ange unfazed over missing Socceroos stars

Socceroos midfielder Tom Rogic says he's fit to play in Thursday's World Cup qualifier against Kyrgyzstan.

The in-form 22-year-old joined the rest of his teammates in Canberra late on Tuesday night after flying in from Scotland, where he is back playing for Scottish Premier League side Celtic following a two-year injury spell.

With less than two days before kick-off Rogic does not have much time to recover from the travel, but the Canberra native said he felt "ready to go".

However in a massive blow to coach Ange Postecoglou's side, German-based striker Mathew Leckie will almost certainly not take part in the game against Kyrgyzstan, having been advised not to fly from Europe due to a respiratory problem.

Also in doubt is goalkeeper Mat Ryan, who is recovering from a knee injury, and left-back Jason Davidson, who appeared to have a problem with his calf at training on Tuesday.

Central defender Matthew Spiranovic has been ruled out with a calf issue.
