Adelaide’s Galekovic replaces Federici in Socceroos squad

Adelaide United goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic has replaced Reading’s Adam Federici in the Socceroos squad.

Adelaide United goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic has replaced Reading’s Adam Federici in the Socceroos squad.

Federici sustained a minor back injury against Preston North End on the weekend and will step out of the squad that takes on Japan in Yokohama tomorrow.

It is a great reward for Galekovic who has had an outstanding season in both the A-League and Asian Champions League and it backs up his international debut when he took the gloves in last month’s 0-0 draw with Indonesia in Asian Cup qualifying.
