Mooy selected in Socceroos’ March World Cup Qualifiers


City marquee man Aaron Mooy has been selected in Ange Postecoglou’s 23-man squad to take on Tajikistan and Jordan in March.

Mooy has been a mainstay in the national team setup after the 2015 Asian Cup triumph, with the midfielder playing a vital role in the Socceroos’ qualifiers thus far.

With three goals in the last three matches for City, his domestic form has continued to flourish, with the Socceroos Head Coach labeling him the best player in the league.

The Socceroos sit on top of Group B and bring in a mix of experienced and uncapped players into the side that could secure their progression to the next stage of qualification.

“We are faced with two very important World Cup Qualifiers against Tajikistan in Adelaide and then Jordan in Sydney,” Postecoglou said. “We have seen throughout the qualifiers that these teams offer unique challenges and this will be no different.

“The primary focus for us is to make sure we continue to play our brand of football that will deliver short term success while building towards the bigger picture.

“This is the first time we have had back to back matches in Australia during this World Cup qualifying campaign and we look forward to seeing the Socceroo fans in Adelaide and Sydney come out to get behind the team.”

The Socceroos matches against Tajikistan (Adelaide) and Jordan (Sydney) will be broadcast exclusively LIVE on FOX SPORTS and on a one hour delay on SBS.
