Socceroo stars Mile Jedinak and Adam Federici are set for blockbuster clashes in England's League Cup after their respective clubs were drawn against English Premier League giants in the next round of the Cup.
In what will be big occasions for the Aussies, Jedinak’s Crystal Palace have been drawn away to Manchester City.
And Federici and AFC Bournemouth are heading to Anfield to take on Liverpool in the last 16.
The draw for the next round was completed on Thursday morning (AEST).
Bournemouth had Federici to thank for getting them to this stage of the competition after the Socceroo gloveman saved three shootout spotkicks in their win over Bailey Wright’s Preston North End on Wednesday.
Palace did things much easier against Charlton Athletic winning 4-1, although Jedinak was a spectator as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.
The Socceroo skipper should be back though for the huge challenge against City at the Etihad, which is set down for late October.
Ex-Socceroo number one Mark Schwarzer is also still alive in the League Cup with his high-flying Leicester City drawn away against Championship club Hull City.
Schwarzer made his first appearance of the season for Leicester in the Cup on Wednesday, helping them to a 2-1 home win over West Ham United.
