Wigan Athletic's Al-Habsi to lead full strength Oman in Australia says Le Guen

Oman will be full strength when they take on Australia in a World Cup qualifier in Sydney next week.

The 105th-ranked Omanis will meet Haiti in a friendly in Muscat on Wednesday before travelling to Australia with Paul Le Guen taking a full squad led by captain and Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi.

The Oman will also feature Saudi Arabian-based strikers Imad Al-Hosni and Ismail Al-Ajmi as the Southwest Asian nation look to bypass the Socceroos on the Group B qualification table.

"It is for the first time we are having all our players together after our win against Syria (2015 Asian Cup Group 'A' qualifier on February 6)," said Le Guen.

"We are happy to have these players train and play together before face Australia.

"It is not going to be easy against Australia. But I must say we also have a chance to win."
