Late withdrawals hit Socceroos

28 May 2012 14:55

Australia could be missing up to three of their first-choice players for their friendly against Denmark in Copenhagen on Saturday.

Josh Kennedy and Carl Valeri will definitely sit out the clash due to club commitments while Brett Holman is in doubt with his wife expecting to give birth to their second child.

Kennedy will play for Japanese outfit Nagoya Grampus in their cut-throat round-of-16 AFC Champions League clash with Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium on Tuesday.

Valeri will line up for US Sassuolo Calcio in their crucial Serie B promotion play-off matches against Sampdoria on Wednesday and Saturday respectively.

However, Kennedy and Valeri will both rejoin the Socceroos squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Oman in Muscat (June 8) and Japan in Brisbane (June 12).

It's unclear whether Holman will be available for the match-up with the Omanis either.

Meanwhile, reserve goalkeeper Adam Federici has pulled out of the squad for the matches with Denmark, Oman and Japan due to injury and has been replaced by Borussia Dortmund shot-stopper Mitch Langerak.

Holman's Aston Villa team-mate Chris Herd has also been ruled out due to injury and does not have a replacement.

Socceroos squad for Denmark, Oman and Japan matches: Mark Bresciano, Alex Brosque, Tim Cahill, David Carney, Nathan Coe (gk), Brett Holman, Mile Jedinak, Joshua Kennedy, Harry Kewell, Neil Kilkenny, Robbie Kruse, Mitchell Langerak (gk), Matt McKay, Mark Milligan, Lucas Neill, Jade North, Sasa Ognenovski, Nikita Rukavytsya, Mark Schwarzer (gk), Matt Spiranovic, Archie Thompson, Carl Valeri, Luke Wilkshire, Rhys Williams, Michael Zullo.
