Karem Bulut, Brendan Hamill, Benjamin Kantarovski, Robert Kolak, Jared Lum, Nikola Stanojevic, Lawrence Thomas and Marc Warren were all selected in Martyn Crook?s 18-man squad.
Crook, has named 18 players to take part in the five team tournament which also includes Bahrain, Malaysia, Singapore and host nation, Indonesia.
“This is an important part of our preparation for the Asian Football Confederation’s (AFC) Under 16 Championships, and gives me a good opportunity to see the boys in action in conditions different from those they’re used to at home,” Crook said.
The AFC Under 16 Championships will be held in Uzbekistan in October.
“It is also the first time this group of players has played in a tournament against players of their own age.  Past tournaments have been against older players, so this will be a very good test of just how we’re doing at this age group.”
“Being able to benchmark our performance at the age group is particularly important as this age group includes the players who will form the core of the Qantas Socceroos in 2018.?
