Australian U-23’s National Team Head Coach Josep Gombau has selected his 23-player squad that will compete at the AFC U-23 Championship China 2018 Qualifiers to be held this week in Myanmar.
After a week-long pre-tournament camp in Sydney, which featured two training matches against the Western Sydney Wanderers FC and Central Coast Mariners, Gombau reduced his squad from 26 to 23 players before heading to Myanmar yesterday.
Australia’s first match will be against Brunei Darussalam on 19 July, followed by Singapore on 21 July and then the host nation, Myanmar, on 23 July.
To qualify for next year’s AFC U-23 Championship, Australia needs to top its group or be one of the best five second placed teams of the ten qualifying groups.Australian Under 23’s National Team Squad for AFC U-23 CHAMPIONSHIP 2018 Qualifiers
