Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou says J-League winger Nathan Burns’ injury isn't a concern but the news on Roda JC striker Tomi Juric wasn’t as positive after Thursday night's 3-0 World Cup qualifier win over Kyrgyzstan.
After the win in Canberra, the pair's injuries were the only downside to an emphatic victory that puts Australia now just one point behind group leaders Jordan.
“'Burnsy' will be alright,” Postecoglou told reporters in Canberra on Friday morning.
“Tomi Juric is probably struggling. We might have a scan for him this morning.
"They were the main two [injury concerns] at this stage. No problems with Nathan but Tomi’s a concern.”
Juric, who has recently signed with Roda JC Kerkrade from ACL champions Western Sydney Wanderers, was withdrawn with what is thought to be a groin or hip flexor injury.
His replacement Burns, who won the opening penalty that was converted by Mile Jedinak, was later subbed off due to injury concerns.
Thursday night’s squad will finish their recovery on Friday morning in Canberra.
Hyundai A-League players are on standby should they be required.
The Socceroos leave the nation's capital later on Friday and will be based in Singapore before flying into Dhaka ahead of their next qualifier with Bangladesh on Tuesday night (AEDT).
The decision to travel to Bangladesh was reached following on-going discussions between FFA, the Australian Government, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Bangladesh Government, Bangladesh Football Federation, FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
These discussions commenced following initial contact with DFAT regarding the security situation in Bangladesh.
“Obviously I’ve been kept up to date. But I’m comfortable with the point we’ve reached and everyone else is comfortable which is most important,” Postecolgou said.
“Now that last night’s game is done and dusted, we can focus on the second one.”
