Socceroos World Cup squad announced

Tom Rogic and Trent Sainsbury have been left out of the 26-player Socceroos squad for the Qatar World Cup.

Other noticeable omissions included goalkeeper Mitch Langerak and Adam Taggart. All three were members of sides during the qualification matches.

Coach Graham Arnold in a statement said: “It’s been a unique and difficult qualification campaign and we now arrive in Qatar with an exciting squad which will do everything to make Australia proud on the world stage,”

“Over the past four years, 32 players have made their debut for the national team. I want to thank every player who has helped the team over this journey. We have called upon 68 players during the qualifying campaign and every one of them has played a part in getting us here.”

“The make-up of our team reflects Australia’s multicultural landscape. Our boys come from all over the world, they all have different journeys, but we are united by one jersey.”
