“We have two quality games which we can observe the players with a view towards the (AFC U-19 Championship) qualifiers.

“Every player will get the opportunity to play, so for us it is very important to identify players that can do what we ask them to do,” concluded Talay.

The Young Socceroos played a WA State team at Perth Plasterboard Centre Stadium in Inglewood on Wednesday, followed by a match against Singapore U-20 National Team on Friday, 4 August at Hartfield Park in Forrestfield.
