Kennedy, Ognenovski return for Socceroos

Qantas Socceroos head coach Holger Osieck has named a 26-player squad for the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers against Japan (4 June – Saitama), Jordan (11 June – Melbourne) and Iraq (18 June – Sydney).

Qantas Socceroos captain Lucas Neill returns to the squad after missing the last match against Oman through suspension. Also returning to the Qantas Socceroos squad after various periods of absence are Josh Kennedy, Sasa Ognenovski, and Mitchell Langerak.

Osieck has also included seven (7) Hyundai A-League players in Ivan Franjic (Brisbane Roar), Eugene Galekovic (Adelaide United), Mark Milligan (Melbourne Victory), Jade North (Brisbane Roar), Archie Thompson (Melbourne Victory), Michael Thwaite (Perth Glory) and Dario Vidosic (Adelaide United) who receives his first call-up under Osieck.

The Qantas Socceroos are currently in third position of Group B and need positive results from their remaining three matches to secure a top two place in the group to guarantee automatic qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

The upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifier between the Qantas Socceroos and Japan, Jordan and Iraq will be broadcast exclusively live on FOX SPORTS with SBS TV as the exclusive free to air broadcaster for all three (3) matches.
