This weekend the season gets underway in the English Premier League and across all leagues in England with a host of Socceroos set to feature.
Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak is set to lead Australia next month but this weekend he takes his Crystal Palace side to newly promoted Norwich in a tricky opening round fixture in the EPL.
Socceroo keeper Adam Federici could also be between the sticks on a huge day for his promoted club Bournemouth, who make their EPL debut at home against Aston Villa.
Former Socceroo number one, legendary glovesman Mark Schwarzer, will hope to get the nod as Leicester City’s number one as they host Sunderland.
In the Championship, Socceroo attacking midfielder Massimo Luongo is set to play a key role for Queens Park Rangers as they begin their promotion push away at Charlton.
There should be two Socceroos in the Preston North End side with both Bailey Wright and Neil Kilkenny a good chance to start in their home clash with Middlesbrough.
Left-back Jason Davidson will hope to take his good pre-season form in Huddersfield Town’s tough away clash against Taylor Tombides’ Hull City, who were relegated from the EPL last season.
Both Adam Taggart [Fulham] and Ryan Edwards [Reading] will hope to make their first-team squads for trips to Cardiff and Birmingham respectively.
There are Aussies in action in League One as well with Shane Cansdell-Sheriff’s newly-promoted Burton Albion hosting Scunthorpe.
James Meredith heads to Swindon Town with Bradford City, while Bradden Inman’s Crewe Alexandria hosting Port Vale.
In League Two, Alex Cisak and Shane Lowry could both be in the starting XI as their Leyton Orient take on Barnet.
