Original title: The Australian team announced the list of the top 12 national football teams, and the two main strikers of the Australian Super League return
Australian men’s football coach Arnold recently announced the list of players for the two top 12 matches against Saudi and Chinese men’s football this month. Four players are from the local Australian Super League and 20 players are playing in overseas leagues.
According to the Australian Football Association, on November 11, the Australian men’s football team will face the visiting Saudi team at Western Sydney Stadium. This will be the first time the “Kangaroo Army” will play at home after two years due to the epidemic. On November 16, the Australian men’s football team will go to Sharjah, UAE, as the visiting team according to the schedule, against the Chinese men’s football team.
Arnold introduced that among the 24 players selected this time, there are the main shooters Jamie McLaren and Matthew Lecky in the top 40. The two of them did not participate in the previous top 12 matches with the team due to restrictions such as entry and exit isolation. They, along with the main wingback Ryan Grant and striker Andrew Nabot, are the four Australian Super players recruited this time.
The other 20 are returnees, including the high school defender Harry Sutta who played in the Europa League, the core midfielder Jackson Irving, the attacking midfielder Edin Hrustic, and the strikers Martin Boyle and Ah Ma Biller and other main forces. The two strikers Tom Roger and Adam Taggart, as well as midfielder Aaron Mooy, who played for the Shanghai Seaport of the Super League, were not selected this time.
Arnold said that on the 11th, the Australian men’s football team will draw energy from the cheer of the home fans and go all out. He also said that although the main players such as Rogi and Mu Yi were absent due to factors such as injury or isolation, this has little effect on the Australian men’s football team, which is deep enough.
At present, in the top 12 competition for Group B, the Saudi team, which has won four games, leads with 12 points, Australia is second with 9 points, Oman and Japan have 6 points, China has 3 points, and Vietnam is the bottom.
