FC Utrecht's Oar to shake off injury to feature for Australia

Tommy Oar is confident he will be fit and available for Australia as they prepare for a World Cup qualifier with Oman on Tuesday.

The Socceroos host the Omanis in Sydney in Asian qualifying with Oar a minor doubt after sustaining a slight knee injury for FC Utrecht last weekend, however, the 21-year old feels he will be fine to take his place in the starting line-up if given the chance by manager Holger Osieck.

"It's nothing really to worry about. I've been working hard with the physios and I've trained fully today so it's not a problem," Oar said.

"Whatever he decides I have to live with but I'm just happy to be involved back in the squad.

"Whether it's from the beginning or off the bench I'm confident I can help the team.

"I've just got to train hard over the next week and see what unfolds."
