Melbourne Victory's Mark Milligan, Nick Ansell, Scott Galloway, Jason Geria, Jesse Makarounas and Connor Pain will head to the Central Coast for a training camp involving senior and young Socceroos this month.

Qantas Socceroos Head Coach Holger Osieck has selected 12 Australian-based players to participate in a training camp on the Central Coast next week (Monday 6 May - Friday 10 May 2013) as part of the Qantas Socceroos preparations for the upcoming FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers against Japan, Jordan and Iraq next month.

The training camp will be held in conjunction with a Qantas Young Socceroos training camp, who are currently preparing for the upcoming FIFA U-20 World Cup which will be held in Turkey from 21 June - 14 July 2013.

Osieck is eager to work with these players on the pitch next week.

“We currently have two groups of players, those that are still playing in their domestic leagues and those from Australia that are in their off-season,” said Osieck.

“The purpose of this training camp is to assess the physical standard of the players out of season and get them to a similar level compared to the other players,” concluded Osieck

The players from both squads will hold an open training session at Pluim Park, Lisarow from 4:30pm on Wednesday 8 May 2013, with an autograph signing session from 4pm.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifier between the Qantas Socceroos and Japan, Jordan and Iraq will be broadcast exclusively live on FOX SPORTS with SBS TV as the exclusive free to air broadcaster for all three (3) matches.

Tickets for the Qantas Socceroos matches against Jordan in Melbourne and Iraq in Sydney are available for purchase from www.footballaustralia.com.au/tickets.
