Chloe Logarzo's strong W-League form has been rewarded with inclusion in Australia's squad for next weekend's friendly against South Korea in Incheon.

Matildas coach Alen Stajcic on Sunday named a 20-strong squad for the match, which will be Australia's last match before February's Olympic qualifying tournament.

Newcastle Jets midfielder Logarzo is enjoying an impressive season after the 20-year-old moved from Sydney FC in October.

Perth Glory forward Samantha Kerr, however, won't be on the plane on Tuesday after she was ruled out for three months due to a foot injury suffered last weekend.

German-based duo Emily van Egmond and Elise Kellond-Knight, who was this week shortlisted for the 2015 Asian confederation women's player-of-the-year award, will join up with the squad in Incheon.

"Our recent trip to China for matches against England and China showed we have a lot of work to do before February (Olympic qualifiers in Japan)," Stajcic said.

"We need to make the most of this chance to get the squad together and play against a nation that will also be fighting it out for one of the two Olympic spots."

The match against South Korea kicks off at 4.15pm AEDT next Sunday.
