Kristian Sarkies (Melbourne Victory), Adrian Leijer (Melbourne Victory), Danny Vukovic (Central Coast Mariners) and Stuart Musialik (Newcastle Jets) were selected to enter camp and train with Socceroos head coach Guus Hiddink following their outstanding performances in the Hyundai A-League and at the recent four nations tournament in Vietnam.
"It's a wonderful opportunity for these younger players to see how top-level professional footballers prepare themselves, and what it takes to be competitive at senior international level," said Socceroos Assistant Coach, Graham Arnold.
"These players are future Socceroos, and we need to enhance their development whenever possible."
Stuart Musialik will continue on with the squad to the Netherlands and Germany and leave camp just prior to the commencement of the FIFA World Cup. Musialik will be joined by two Under 23 European-based Australian players in the Netherlands & Germany who will be named at a later date.
