ASIAN CUP: Palace skipper Jedinak crocked for Australia

Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak has suffered an injury on Asian Cup duty with Australia.

The Socceroos captain, aged 30, twisted his left ankle contesting a header during Friday's 4-1 victory over Kuwait.

Head coach Ange Postecoglou said: "He's not quite right to play and at this stage of the tournament ... we are better to give it a few days extra rest and we will re-assess where he's at for the game against (South) Korea."

Oman, which plays Australia on Tuesday in Sydney, lost their opening match of the tournament 1-0 to South Korea on Saturday. Australia and South Korea are expected to vie for top honors in Group A of the 16-team tournament.
