Official release from Football Federation Australia
Young Socceroos Head Coach Paul Okon has selected an overseas-based 16-player squad for a training camp in London from 6 to 9 September 2013.
Okon is looking forward to this opportunity to look at the players based in the UK and Europe.
“There are a large numbers of players eligible for the Young Socceroos playing overseas and to bring them together for a 4 day camp is fantastic,” said Okon.
“In the early stage of this program I have had a chance to look at the Australian-based players and this camp will allow me to broaden the net and see how these players are progressing based overseas.
“I am excited at the prospect of having four days to work with these players and hopefully we are able to identify some that will be part of the program moving forward especially as we have the first stage of the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup Qualifying in October,” concluded Okon.
The Young Socceroos will next compete at the AFC U-19 Championship Qualifiers which will be held in Malaysia from 3-11 October 2013.
