One of the real success stories for Sydney FC over the last season, Shannon Cole is again on track to make his international debut after being named today in the Socceroos squad for Australia-s upcoming Asian Cup qualifier against Kuwait, which will be played early next month in Canberra.
The 24-year-old enjoyed his first taste of the national setup when he was selected in Coach, Pim Verbeek-s squad for last month-s Asian Cup qualifier against Indonesia. He didn-t make the final 15 for the Jakarta match but is looking forward to again pressing his claims in Canberra.
“Being in camp with the Socceroos last month was a great experience for me and I-m honoured to have another opportunity to represent my country,” said Cole. “I-ll just be giving it everything I-ve got at training and if I get the chance to play then I-ll take it with both hands.”
Twenty-four players, all from the Hyundai A-League have been named in the squad for Australia-s second AFC Asian Cup qualifier.
The clash with Kuwait will be played at Canberra Stadium at 8:00pm on Thursday, March 5.
