Mooy, Dougall. Davidson, Duke, Karacic in.

No Grant, Taggart, Ruka, Metcalfe, Wright, Luongo, Jeggo, Folami, Bruno. 

Surprised about Jeggo, Taggart and Metcalfe too 

Only 2 GKs? One of which is a donkey.

Very thin at CB. Typical 2 then Stensness and Rowles. Don't get the Wright omission for an extended squad. Some favourites dropped right out. Midfield stacked.

Potential back 3 with Davidson? Wish Taggart were in.

Duke ahead of Ruka and Cummings. I really don't think Arnie rates Tillio. Remember. he only added him to the Olympics squad as an injury replacement, not selected initially.

Stop the press! They've just updated the alphabetical order list. That's very odd.

I've reopened the link to see Taggart and Wright in there.

That's weird. Happy to see Taggart included.

My initial click a minute after it was live cut off at Stensness. Now Taggart, Tilio,  Vukovic and Wright are there.

How can he start metcalfe against Japan and then not include him at all in the next squad. I have no issue with the omission but how is he good enough to be in our best XI then not good enough for a squad of 29

Could be right about back 3. Davidson certainly better as lwb than lb.

Exactly and what message does it send? I thought Metcalfe might actually be left out in order to rest and move to Germany and get pre season going. Season is only 7 weeks away.

But I agree. You can't be starting then completely out.

I like Daggers, but Cummings has been one of the best strikers in the league. Offers more overall than Daggers & Maclaren.

Concerning thing about this selection is that should anything happen to Ryan our next cab off the rank is either Redmayne or Vukovic who hasn't played a single league game this season.

Birighitti should clearly be chosen ahead of Redmayne.

Struggles to be first choice at SFC ... IMO at least three better keepers in the A_l...

Elder sometimes captain In championship yet not good enough for socceroos what a joke.  No devlin luongo or jeggo.  The squad seems light on proper holding mids  apart from that I guess the rest is expected great to see Grant out

Great look for the players trying their guts out when you have blokes like Macalaren who more then once have said they don’t think they can play as they have other stuff on getting picked. Surely Cummings for him at least.

Davidson's had an excellent season but I'm not completely convinced he's a better option than Smith or Elder. It might be a case of out of sight out of mind for them, especially Smith.

Disappointed in the squad overall...the kids left out...

Xavi impressed by G Kuol - but not Arnold 😂Cummings with 10 goals 6 assists not in. Duke with 3 goals 1 assist is IN. 😂
Redmayne is almost useless compared to Birighitti - even Young.

will be absolutely SHOCKED if this squad makes it to Qatar

There’s still hope for Cummings if JMac breaks a nail in grand final 🤞

100%. The ONLY reason i can think of for Redmayne inclusion is his penalty saving abilities when he does the wiggles thing that worked for SFC v Perth grand final shoot out

I don’t think Arnie has a say in the Gk department, it’s likely Crawley being an arse.

I’m shocked that Grant has been left out. Very happy that Taggart is back. A few positives at least. Along with a couple of head scratchers.

Don't mind Davidson's selection. Joel King played really well against Vietnam, however hasn't played a lot at club level, where's Elder has played 28 games in the championship. He should be our starting LB, let alone making the actual squad!! Behich is one of Arnie's favorites, so he'll be starting anyway.

You just know Behich has an own goal in him v UAE.

For me it depends on the formation. Comfortable with Davidson at lwb, at lb not so much.
