Captain Mile Jedinak and goalkeeper Mat Ryan will return for the Socceroos in their upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Kyrgyzstan and Bangladesh.
Jedinak and Ryan haven’t featured for the national team since Australia
’s opening qualifier against Kyrgyzstan in June, missing the team’s victories over Bangladesh and Tajikistan, along with the away loss to Jordan.
“Having Mile and Matty available again is a boost for the next two matches,” coach Ange Postecoglou said. “Mile has made his return from injury and as the skipper his presence will be a bonus for us while Mat will be back in full training by the time the window comes along next week.”
