Roar players chosen for AFC U-22 qualifiers

Five Brisbane Roar players have been selected to represent Australia in the AFC Under-22 Championship qualifiers which will be played in Indonesia next month.

Five Brisbane Roar players have been selected to represent Australia in the AFC Under-22 Championship qualifiers which will be played in Indonesia next month.

Corey Brown, James Donachie, Nick Fitzgerald, Jason Geria and Anthony Proia all impressed in this month-s training camp in Brisbane and have been chosen in Head Coach Paul Okon-s final 23-player squad.

“Our recent training camp in Brisbane was very positive and gave us a good indication on the level of the players,” said Okon.

“This tournament will be a tough challenge for the boys with five matches to be played in ten days.

“Fitness will be a key factor in dealing with the frequency of matches and the hot and humid conditions we will encounter in Indonesia.”

The Qantas Young Socceroos will assemble in Sydney on Sunday 1 July before departing for Pekanbaru, Sumatra, Indonesia on Monday 2 July.

The Qantas Young Socceroos will play five matches in ten days against fellow Group E nations Indonesia (5 July), Macau (7 July), Singapore (10 July), Timor Leste (12 July) and Japan (15 July).

The top two teams from Group E and the best third placed team of all groups (total 15) will then progress to the AFC U-22 Championship which will be played in January 2014.
