Beauchamp, Kennedy & Kewell out of Qantas Socceroos Squad
Beauchamp, Kennedy & Kewell out of Qantas Socceroos Squad to face Switzerland and Poland.
Injuries to Michael Beauchamp (ankle), Josh Kennedy (back) and Harry Kewell (groin) have prevented the trio from joining the Qantas Socceroos squad for the upcoming international friendly matches against Switzerland & Poland. After consultation with the players and their clubs, Qantas Socceroos Head Coach Holger Osieck has decided that they would not be required in camp.
Following these withdrawals, Osieck has added Jon McKain and Tommy Oar into the Qantas Socceroos squad.
A decision regarding whether an additional player will be added to the Qantas Socceroos squad will be made in the coming days.
The Qantas Socceroos will assemble in St Gallen tomorrow (Tuesday 31 August) for their first official training session under Osieck.
All Qantas Socceroos matches are broadcast live and exclusive on FOX SPORTS.
