Socceroos squad for South Korea

Socceroos boss Graham Arnold has named a 23-man squad to take on South Korea in Brisbane next week.

Young gun Daniel Arzani wasn't included in the squad after sustaining a devastating ACL injury on his debut for Celtic last week. 

James Jeggo is a surprise inclusion, the Austrian-based midfielder will be looking for his first cap after falling short under Ange Postecoglou. 

Four A-League players have been included as "train-on" players, Craig Goodwin (Adelaide), Rhyan Grant (Sydney), Dimi Petratos (Newcastle) and Thomas Deng (Melb Victory). 

“We made some great progress in Turkey in September, as well as in the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait last month,” Arnold said.

“However, this window will be exceptionally important for us as we have only had 15 days to work together as a team on the training pitch. In training, and in our friendlies against Korea Republic and Lebanon, we will be looking to introduce more players to the Socceroos system and reward a number of locally based players for their performances in the Hyundai A-League and FFA Cup.”

FULL SQUAD: Mustafa Amini, Aziz Behich, Martin Boyle, Milos Degenek, Alex Gersbach, Jackson Irvine, James Jeggo, Tomi Juric, Matthew Jurman, Robbie Kruse, Mitch Langerak, Mathew Leckie, Massimo Luongo, Awer Mabil, Jamie Maclaren, Mark Milligan, Aaron Mooy, Andrew Nabbout, Josh Risdon, Tom Rogic, Mathew Ryan, Trent Sainsbury, Danny Vukovic.
