International City: Arzani and Tongyik selected in U23 camp


City young guns Daniel Arzani and Ruon Tongyik have been selected in Josep Gombau’s Under 23 camp in Sydney ahead of the AFC U23 Championship qualifiers in July.

The duo will be joined by a host of talented youngsters across the A-League as they look to book their ticket to Myanmar to compete in the qualification stages for the 2018 competition and Head Coach Gombau is looking forward to seeing the future stars in action.

“I am happy with this squad because most of the 24 players we have picked for this camp have been getting game time in the Hyundai A-League and a number of them have been playing in the first eleven which is important,” said Gombau.

 “The majority of the squad that we take to the qualifiers in July will come from this group of players so the training camp will be a valuable time to work together on the style, the philosophy and our tactical movements.”

 “Following this camp we’ll also have ten days to bring the squad together before the tournament so I am confident we can do a good job once we get there.”

To qualify for next year’s AFC U-23 Championship, Australia needs to top its group or be one of the best five second placed teams of the ten qualifying groups.
