Sydney FC's Emerton eyeing Socceroos return

Brett Emerton says he is determined to gain a call-up to the Australian national team now he is back from injury.

The Sydney FC star has recovered from an ankle injury sustained last season and feels he is getting back to his best ahead of a possible return to the Socceroos setup for next month's friendly with South Korea.

"That's been my aim since coming back from surgery five or six months ago," the former Blackburn Rovers midfielder said.

"I feel I'm back. I've got three games under my belt and I'm feeling stronger with each one.

"I hope to have the opportunity to play for the Socceroos again soon.

"You put your hand up for any international game. It's always an honour and a privilege to represent your country.

"Time will tell (but) I'd love to wear the green and gold again."
