International City: Mooy makes Socceroos squad to take on Greece


City marquee man Aaron Mooy has been selected in Ange Postecoglou’s Socceroos side to take on Greece in a two-match series in June.

Mooy, who was selected for May’s friendly with England in Sunderland, received another call up to the national team set up with the two matches against the 2004 European Champions to be held in Sydney and Melbourne.

Head Coach Ange Postecoglou said with the ability to select his full repertoire of players for the friendlies, it will give him a better insight into how he wants the side to look ahead of the next stage of World Cup Qualifying.

“The matches against Greece are about continuing to expose our players to a high level of international football,” Postecoglou said.

“The competition and intensity of these matches will definitely give us that and gives us the right preparation for the next round of World Cup qualifiers and the Confederations Cup.

“The Asian Cup and the first round of World Cup qualifiers put our focus on Asian teams and conditions but it’s important to confront a range of styles,

“Greece will present a different set of technical and tactical challenges and they have many players at the top level in Europe.”
