A host of past and present Socceroos will be in attendance at AAMI Park on Friday night, when Melbourne Victory honours it-s dual premiership winning captain, Kevin Muscat.

The testimonial match for Victory-s fearless skipper will be played in front of current Socceroos Craig Moore, Vince Grella and Mark Bresciano, while former national team representatives Tony Popovic, Steve Corica, Stan Lazaridis and Zeljko Kalac will also be in attendance.

All seven will be involved in the pre-match build-up to pay tribute to Kevin, and they-ll no doubt have something special up their sleeves for the man they call ‘Musky-.

"I-m certainly honoured that these guys have agreed to take part on Friday night" Muscat said.

"With the World Cup just around the corner it wasn-t easy for a few of them to make it happen, but I-m rapt to have them involved and hopefully we can put on a great spectacle for the fans".

The match will be Victory-s first at Melbourne-s new, purpose-built rectangular stadium, AAMI Park.

What: Kevin Muscat testimonial. Who: Melbourne Victory v Come Play XI. When: Friday 14th May, 8.00pm. Where: AAMI Park.
