Australia name Luongo in World Cup squad

The final squad was the result of a two-week training camp in Antalya, Turkey and a 4-0 worldwide friendly win over Czech Republic.

Nevertheless, Australia's dreamers are counting down to next month's World Cup in Russian Federation more in hope than expectation of progressing to the knockout stages.

The Socceroos squad has been named for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The contest was a final chance for each player to press their claims for a place in the 23-man squad, with four players to be cut from the provisional group by Monday.

Australia will play its last warm-up game against Hungary in Budapest on June 9 before taking on France, Denmark and Peru at the World Cup.

The Australian players, a disparate group playing mostly in leagues around Europe and Asia, have been gradually assembling in Turkey after completing club commitments across 13 countries.

Bert van Marwijk's men crushed the hapless Czechs 4-0 in a trial in St Polten in Austria and the result no doubt will raise a few eyebrows and turn a few heads around the world.

Much of the speculation about who might have been behind the accounts has centered on Colangelo's wife, Barbara Bottini . Colagelo offered his resignation after "recognizing the detrimental impact this matter had on the organization".

This was Australia's first friendly match since their 0-0 draw against Colombia on March 27 and after Aussie coach Ange Postecoglou's resignation.

"He goes, "forget about what's happened in the last few weeks, I know you'll be a bit disappointed. you haven't been able to come in as fresh as you've wanted but now you've got six days to really push your case".

"We have a lot of things to work on, but there's a start and I think it's also important that the players understand what we want", he said.

Van Marwijk acknowledges right-back as the most troublesome position for the Socceroos - it has been for years.

The 38-year-old forward is joined by Millwall team-mate James Meredith, as well as Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan.

There was good news to share, too, with 19-year-old whiz kid Daniel Arzani and striker Jamie Maclaren both selected after impressing in a Turkey training camp. "He's also a player who can make a difference", the coach said.

"My goal is to survive the first round. then I will be very happy", Van Marwijk said. I will not tell about every player, how I speak with him.
