Australian squad for Oman return clash announced

Pim Verbeek has announced his Australian squad for their Asian Cup qualifier against Oman on November 14.

The Socceroos overcame a plucky Omani outfit at Etihad Stadium last month, eventually winning 1-0, and will face them in Muscat for the return leg.

The biggest omission is Celtic striker Scott McDonald who has been left out by Verbeek whilst Vince Grella and Nick Carle will not make the trip due to injury and form issues.

Midfielder Mark Bresciano returns from a back injury as forwards Mile Sterjovski and Bruce Djite have been recalled to the 23-man squad.

The Socceroos squad for the Asian Cup qualifier against Oman on Saturday November 14 is as follows:

Mark Bresciano
Tim Cahill
David Carney
Scott Chipperfield
Jason Culina
Bruce Djite
Brett Emerton
Adam Federici
Brett Holman
Mile Jedinak
Brad Jones
Josh Kennedy
Harry Kewell
Patrick Kisnorbo
Mark Milligan
Craig Moore
Lucas Neill (capt)
Mark Schwarzer
Mile Sterjovski
Carl Valeri
Dario Vidosic
Luke Wilkshire
Rhys Williams
