Holger Osieck has been forced to make a few changes to his Australia squad for this week’s friendly with South Korea.

The Socceroos meet the Taeguk Warriors in Hwaseong on Wednesday but will be without Dinamo Moscow right-back Luke Wilkshire, Busan I’Park’s Matt McKay and FC Utrecht midfielder Adam Sarota who are all injured.

Chunnam Dragons defender Robert Cornthwaite has been called into the squad as Osieck opts to go for a 17-man squad.

This will be the 25th time Australia has met the Korea Republic with the last meeting coming in the group phase of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2011 at the Al Gharafa Stadium in Doha, Qatar where they played out a 1-1 draw.
