Socceroos coach Frank Farina has made two changes to the starting line-up to face Turkey at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne on Monday night.
Socceroos coach Frank Farina has made two changes to the starting line-up to face Turkey at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne on Monday night. In comes Zeljko Kalac for injured captain Mark Schwarzer, who has a bruised hip after Friday-s first match in Sydney. Farina has also rewarded Max Vieri (pictured right) with his first starting eleven cap, after his impressive second half performance in his debut for Australia on Friday night. He will join David Zdrilic in the more conventional two-pronged attack with Scott Chipperfield dropping back to the bench. Australia looked much more comfortable in the second half when it reverted back to its 4-4-2 formation and Vieri made the most of the opportunity with several nice touches and attempts at goal. With Schwarzer sidelined, Farina has drafted Australian Under 23 keeper Eugene Galekovic into the squad for Monday night-s match.
