Federici earns Australia call-up

25 September 2014

Goalkeeper recognised after top form

Adam Federici has been named in Australia's 23-man squad for their friendlies with United Arab Emirates and Qatar in October.

It is deserved reward for our goalkeeper, who has been in excellent form this season since making the number one shirt his own.

Feds could make his first Socceroos appearance in over two years when his country travel to UAE for a game on 10th October and then Qatar four days later.

Midfielder Ryan Edwards was a provisional call-up to Ange Postecoglou's squad, which recognises the progress our young Aussie has made this campaign.

Final Australia squad: Aziz Behich (Bursaspor/TUR), Mark Bresciano (Al Gharafa/QAT), Josh Brillante (Fiorentina/ITA), Tim Cahill (New York Red Bulls/USA), Jason Davidson (West Bromwich Albion/ENG), Adam Federici (Reading/ENG), Ivan Franjic (Moscow Torpedo/RUS), Chris Herd (Bolton Wanderers/ENG), James Holland (Austria Vienna/AUT), Bernie Ibini-Isei (Sydney FC/AUS), Mile Jedinak (Crystal Palace/ENG), Tomi Juric (Western Sydney Wanderers/AUS), Mitch Langerak (Borussia Dortmund/GER), Mathew Leckie (Ingolstadt/GER), Massimo Luongo (Swindon Town/ENG), Mark Milligan (Melbourne Victory/AUS), Tommy Oar (FC Utrecht/NED), Mat Ryan (Club Brugge/BEL), Trent Sainsbury (PEC Zwolle/NED), Brad Smith (Swindon Town/ENG), Nikolai Topor-Stanley (Western Sydney Wanderers/AUS), James Troisi (Zulte Waregem/BEL), Alex Wilkinson (Jeonbuk Hyundai/KOR)

Elsewhere, Simon Cox, Stephen Kelly and Alex Pearce have all provisionally been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for Euro 2016 qualifiers at home to Gibraltar and away at World Cup holders Germany.

Meanwhile, midfielder Oliver Norwood will have the chance to notch up his 20th cap for Northern Ireland, as they take on Faroe Islands at Windsor Park before a trip to Athens three days later against Euro 2004 champions Greece.

In the Royals academy, Harry Cardwell will be part of the Scotland Under-19s squad for European Under-19 Championship 2015 qualifiers against Finland, Lithuania and Norway as Zak Jules and Jake Sheppard will be on standby for the Tartan Army.

Young midfielder Sammi Fridjonsson has been named in the Iceland Under-19s provisional squad and also on standby for his country is Lewis Collins, who will be hoping to represent the Northern Ireland Under-19s for their three games against Czech Republic, Russia and Faroe Islands.

Finally, Icelandic duo Sindri Scheving and Tomas Urbancic have been provisionally called up for their national side’s qualifying games.
