Injury has ruled Harry Kewell out of the Qantas Socceroos' World Cup qualifier against Thailand on Tuesday night.
Upon arrival in Bangkok, Qantas Socceroos team medical staff re-assessed a muscle strain that Harry Kewell had sustained in the match against Oman and determined that he would not be available to play in Tuesday-s match against Thailand.
Qantas Socceroos Head Coach Holger Osieck, in agreement with the medical staff, then gave Harry Kewell the opportunity to return to Australia, at the earliest convenience, to receive individual treatment at his club, Melbourne Victory.
Harry Kewell accepted the offer and returned to Australia immediately.
