Joeys to face Sky Blues in Canberra

The Joeys will finalise their preparations for the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup on home soil with a hit out against Sydney FC’s youth side on Monday.

The match, which kicks off at 3pm at the AIS Grass Fields in Canberra and is open to the public, will feature the Joeys’ Aussie based squad players before they depart for Chile.

Head coach Tony Vidmar last week selected a 21-player squad for the tournament, which will fly out on Wednesday afternoon. 

The Joeys are set to face football superpowers Germany, Argentina, and Mexico in Group C and are one of four qualifiers from Asia.

The Joeys will hold a pre-tournament camp before their opening match against Germany on 18 October, with all three of their group games in Chillan at the Estadio Municipal Nelson Oyarzun Arenas.
