The Young Socceroos defeated both their Group A opponents and are in Melbourne training for their two-legged qualification match either against New Zealand or Fiji. The home leg will be played at Bob Jane Stadium. Date to be confirmed.
Vince Lia, Massimo Murdocca and Michael Baird had a hand in the Group A matches with Vince Lia coming off the bench against Papa New Guinea and scored in the 76th minute.
“It is a good experience. I am enjoying the camp and look forward to our next two matches”, said Lia yesterday.
Get along early to Bob Jane Stadium and watch Australia’s youngest stars and three of South Melbourne finest young guns, proudly wear the Green and Gold at Lakeside this Sunday.
Bob Jane Stadium will play host to three matches this Sunday with the main match, the Round 13 encounter between South Melbourne and Kingz FC. At this stage the squad looks to be unchanged from last week but Danny Wright has one more session tomorrow morning if he is to make any changes.
