SOCCEROOS SQUAD: Five City stars called up to face Argentina

Socceroos Head Coach, Graham Arnold, on Tuesday revealed his squad to face Argentina, with a heavy Melbourne City contingent named.

Set for a re-match after meeting in the Round of 16 in Qatar at last year’s FIFA World Cup, both Mathew Leckie and Jamie Maclaren have been named after featuring in that contest.

After debuting for their country in the last international window against Ecuador, Aiden O’Neill and Jordan Bos have again been included in the squad.

The biggest news for City fans though comes between the sticks, with goalkeeper Tom Glover called-up for the first time.

This comes off the back of a strong season, where Glover made his mark as one of the best up-and-coming young goalkeepers in the country.

There are plenty of other familiar faces in the mix too, with a trio of City Academy products; Nathaniel Atkinson, Connor Metcalfe and Denis Genreau, also part of the squad.

The Socceroos will face Argentina on Thursday 15 June in Beijing, in a clash that will kick-off at 10pm (AEDT). You can tune in live and free via Channel 10.
