Socceroos striker Kennedy out of Bahrain match

Socceroos striker Josh Kennedy will miss tonight's World Cup qualifier against Bahrain in Sydney. Kennedy has muscle soreness after the 0-0 draw in Qatar on the weekend and will not be risked.

"With his 194cm, he had some problems in the airplane," coach Pim Verbeek said yesterday of Kennedy.

"He will be fit to play Japan (in Melbourne next week), but we will not risk him tomorrow."
