Socceroos without Juric and Rogic for Bangladesh clash

November 14, 2015 7:47 pm

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Asian champions Australia will be without striker Tomi Juric and playmaker Tom Rogic for Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh in Dhaka.

Juric injured a groin and Rogic suffered quad soreness in Thursday’s 3-0 win over Kyrgyzstan in Canberra and they will not be risked for the fixture against lowly opponents who they beat 5-0 at home in September.

Australia coach Ange Postecoglou opted against calling up replacements for the Group B clash.
