Young Socceroos Head Coach Ufuk Talay has named a 25-player squad for a training camp at the AIS from 6-9 February.
The squad, which consists of players who come from teams in the Foxtel National Youth League, will assemble in Canberra on Monday 6 February looking to impress Talay and his coaching staff.
“The squad comprises of players born in 1999, most of whom have been playing in the recently completed National Youth League season,” said Talay.
“The aim of the camp is to have a look at these players in our environment, get them to understand the philosophies of the national teams and the way we want to play, and moving forward beginning to prepare for our qualifiers in October.”
Every club in the Foxtel National Youth League is represented in the squad, with champions Melbourne City FC having six players in the list of 25.
