Young Socceroos World Cup preparation squad named

The Qantas Young Socceroos AIS training squad has been named by head coach Jan Versleijen.

The Dutchman has named a 25-man squad that will meet in Canberra and prepare for the FIFA U20 World Cup.

“This is the first training camp that we will have together since qualifying for the World Cup,” said Versleijen.

“I have also invited some new players into the camp to see how they can fit in and possibly add something new and different to the group.

“It is a little over 6 months from the first match of the tournament and we will be looking to make a selection then build on that selection for our campaign.

“We will be holding more training camps in the coming months in Australia and overseas which will also include the foreign-based players to help strengthen the playing group," concluded Versleijen.
