Did Brandon O'Neill just miss out due to age? The squad is quite exciting.

By a process of elimination, Deng must have been the other starting CB and McGree and O'Niell were highly likely to be the other midfielders

So something like
Izzo
Cowburn - Susnjar - Deng - Garuccio
McGree - O'Neill - Mauk
Buhagiar - Juric - Hrustic

Glover, Gersbach, Kamau, and Popovic seeing no game time.

World Cup hopeful Hrustic sets course for Russia

Such are the vagaries of football, players in the Australian camp for the under-23 Asian Championships have a wide range of motivations.

Some are eager to wear the Olyroos shirt ahead of the 2020 Olympics - a highlight of any athlete's career.

Older players, ineligible for Tokyo, might prefer to be at home with their A-League clubs.

Others are using the tournament to get precious match minutes to impress their club bosses.

And some are thinking bigger.

Hrustic is one of the few in Ante Milicic's squad with experience in the Socceroos set-up and he wants more.

"I'm in camp to get minutes to show myself with the new Socceroos coach coming in," he told AAP.

The controversial selection policy for the tournament means a host of senior players have been taken out of the A-League.

Hrustic - who started in a 2-1 warm-up win over Thailand on Saturday - is happy to be there.

The 21-year-old, who shot into Ange Postecoglou's national team plans off the back of form with Groningen in the Netherlands, has found club football hard to come by.

He has just a handful of starts in the Dutch league since making his debut for the Socceroos at the MCG against Brazil in June.

A poorly-timed red card saw the Melburnian lose his place before a four-week groin injury meant no more club football before the Dutch league's winter break.

It's Dutch and go for Hrustic in quest to become Socceroos regular

Freshly-minted Socceroos midfielder Ajdin Hrustic is primed to take the next step in his burgeoning career, with the new Eredivisie season offering him the chance to nail down a national team spot.

Given his poor end to 2017, Hrustic hopes the China-based tournament can kickstart his year with a World Cup looming.

"I'm slowly getting fit again. I had eight days off for holidays and I worked every day and I'm back in full team training now," he said.

"I'm going step by step. First I'm looking at this month, then I'm looking to club football and then to a World Cup.

"A World Cup is a World Cup, it's a dream to play in one.

"Even pulling the green and gold on for the Olyroos means a lot to me.

"I'm really hungry to show myself and get the best out of myself."

While the motivations of the squad might differ, Hrustic said the competitive and professional nature of the players in camp would ensure a united showing.

"I want to make a good impression here with Ante but I want the best for the team and Ante," he said.

"We're getting along great at the moment. Everyone is helping each other on and off the field. There's a bond."

Nice one, hopefully they show the game.

It's a pretty strong squad tbh. They probably wished they chose Arzani now after last night's efforts.

Champness joining as well will make it interesting. Hope they do well.

It would be much better for U23s if Aus played in the Asean Cup. These games are against mens teams in their own countries. Much better prep for a Socceroos career playing in a hostile stadium than China. NB I think Asean squad should be stronger than U23 but have some included.

Milicic, who oversaw a 2-1 warm-up friendly win against Thailand's under-23s on Saturday, said a number of Europe-based players didn't come into camp.

He listed Chris Ikonomidis, Brandon Borello, Awer Mabil, Cameron Burgess, and Jordan Lyden (injured) as players that declined the call, either personally or by their clubs.

Australia v Syria at 7pm AEDT tonight.

The other match in our group, South Korea v Vietnam, will be on after.

Make sure you subscribe to The AFC Hub on Youtube. Not sure if the Australia game will be geoblocked yet, but they're certainly worth a sub anyway.
