Nick Ansell, Scott Galloway, Jason Geria, Jesse Makarounas and Connor Pain have been named in the 24-player Young Socceroos training camp squad.

Qantas Young Socceroos Head Coach Paul Okon has selected a 24-player squad for a training camp on the Central Coast from 21 to 25 April 2013 featuring the five Melbourne Victory players.

Okon will be using this camp, consisting of purely Australian-based players, as the first part of his final selection phase for the upcoming FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013.

“This is our first camp together since the AFC U-19 Championships last November and our first since the draw for the World Cup was made last month,” said Okon.

“There are some new faces in this squad that we will have the opportunity to experience the national team set-up for the first time as well.

“The competition for places in the final World Cup squad will be high and we need the players to show themselves in these camps,” concluded Okon.
