June 11, 2013

The Socceroos have named an unchanged starting side for the World Cup qualifier against Jordan at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Australia coach Holger Osieck has resisted the temptation to restore Mile Jedinak to the starting side, and has shown faith in midfielder Mark Milligan and the rest of the 11 who earned a 1-1 draw with Japan last week.

Socceroos: Mark Schwarzer, Luke Wilkshire, Lucas Neill, Sasa Ognenovski, Matt McKay, Mark Milligan, Mark Bresciano, Robbie Kruse, Tommy Oar, Brett Holman, Tim Cahill.

Jordan: Amer Shafia, Mohammad Mustafa, Adnan Adous, Saeed Murjan, Khalil Bani Ateyah, Amer Deeb, Odai Al-Saify, Anas Bani Yaseen, Basem Fat'hi, Shadi Abu Hash'hash, Ahmad Hayel.
