RETURN OF THE JEDI
The Caltex Socceroos skipper hadn't played since Australia's 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia in June due to a groin injury, but started Villa's home Championship match against Middlesbrough.
However, Jedinak was replaced at half-time with the game finishing goalless.
With the games again Syria next month fast approaching, having Jedinak back on the park and regaining his match fitness will be a huge boost for Ange Postecoglou’s side.
