Harry Kewell has overcome a niggling groin injury and will take his place in the Socceroos starting line-up for the second leg of the OFC Nations Cup Final against the Solomon Islands at Aussie Stadium tomorrow night. Kewell (pictured right) comes in for Korean-based striker Ahmad Elrich, while the only other change was forced on Farina, with Olympic team vice-captain Luke Wilkshire coming in for the injured Vince Grella, who copped a knock to his calf and will not be risked for this clash. The full line-up is: Mark Schwarzer (gk), Kevin Muscat, Simon Colosimo, Lucas Neill, Tony Vidmar, Tony Popovic, Brett Emerton, Josip Skoko, Harry Kewell, Luke Wilkshire, Ante Milicic Farina has made his intentions clear by basically naming the same side that won the first leg 5-1 in Honiara last Saturday. With weather conditions not expected to be a factor for the second game, Farina will be looking for a full 90-minute performance from the players, to show the Solomons who definitely rules the roost in Oceania football. Kewell will join Milicic and Emerton in a three-pronged attacking formation, with Wilkshire slotting into the midfield alongside Colosimo and Skoko. The match kicks off at 7.30pm at Aussie Stadium (Tuesday 12th October) and tickets can be purchased at Ticketek or at the gate. SBS will show delayed coverage of the match at 10.00pm nationally. There will be a full Live Match Update of the game on the ASA website, from 7.15pm.
