Socceroos defender Trent Sainsbury will make a special appearance at Len Shearer Reserve this Saturday (June 20) from 11am to promote Australia’s upcoming match in Perth.
Sainsbury, who was man-of-the-match in the Socceroos’ Asian Cup final win in January, missed Australia’s recent victory over Kyrgyzstan because of a minor hamstring injury.
The former Armadale junior hopes to play in the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh at nib Stadium on September 3, which will be the Socceroos’ first game in Perth for more than a decade.
Sainsbury will be available to sign posters, courtesy of Football Federation Australia, from 11am to 12pm on Saturday.
This will be a last chance to meet Sainsbury before he returns to his club, PEC Zwolle, in Holland.
