Australia will take on Kuwait in a friendly next Wednesday without two of their Premier League stars.
Head coach Graham Arnold confirmed that goalkeeper Matt Ryan will remain on the south coast rather than travel to the Middle East due to an ongoing problem. "Mathew’s managing a minor injury which hasn’t prevented him from playing or performing for Brighton so far this season. He could have travelled, trained with us, and played, but for this window we believe it is best that he remains in Brighton." Fortunately, Australia have three goalkeepers attending the training camp - Danny Vukovic, Brad Jones, and Mitchell Langerak – and Arnold will consider his best option closer to kick-off. Aaron Mooy is also out of match following a scan which revealed he sustained a minor groin strain in Huddersfield’s 1-1 draw against Burnley. "I am disappointed that I won't be able to join my Socceroos teammates," he said. "I enjoyed the camp in Turkey and trust that I will be ready to join the team in Australia [November]."
