AFC Champions League

Sydney: Australia coach Paul Okon has selected 23 players for a three-day training camp to be held in Sydney from February 17 to 19 as the Young Socceroos prepare for the AFC U-19 Championship in Myanmar in October.

The AFC U-19s, which takes place from October 9 to 23, also serves as a qualifier for the 2015 FIFA World Cup in New Zealand. 

“This is the first of four training camps that we will have in the lead up to the World Cup qualifiers (AFC U-19 Championship) in October,” said Okon, pictured during the Young Socceroos' 2-1 defeat to El Salvador at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey. 

“Although many of the players were at the December training camp, we have also brought in some new players to have a look at. 

“At the moment our goal is to identify as many players as possible that could fit into the squad as well as working on the structure and style of play that we want to take into the tournament. 

“With the Foxtel National Youth League wrapping up in a few weeks, these camps will become even more important in the coming months,” concluded Okon. 

The Young Socceroos will play a training match against the Marconi Stallions at 6:45pm on Wednesday at Marconi Stadium.
