Emerton and Grella Called into World Cup Squad

Emerton and Grella Called into World Cup Squad

As expected, Blackburn Rovers' Aussie Pair Brett Emerton and Vincenzo Grella have been named in the initial 31 man Australian Squad for the 2010 South African World Cup.

Best of luck to the two as they hope to assist in steering the Australian Team past a tricky group stage consisting of Germany, Serbia and Ghana...

The 31 man squad will be trimmed down to a playing squad of 23 players, plus 4 youth players who will tour and train with the team...

The Squad is made up of

Michael Beachamp, Marco Bresciano, Tim Cahill, Nick Carle, David Carney, Scott Chipperfield, Jason Culina, BRETT EMERTON, Adam Federici, Eugene Galekovic, Richard Garcia, VINCENZO GRELLA, James Holland, Brett Holman, Mile Jedinak, Brad Jones, Joshua Kennedy, Harry Kewell, Shane Lowry, Scott McDonald, Mark Milligan, Craig Moore, Lucas Neill, Jade North, Thomas Oar, Nikita Rukavytsya, Mark Schwarzer, Carl Valeri, Dario Vidosic, Luke Wilkshire, Rhys Williams

As far as i'm concerned, its great. Tommy Oar is in (18 year old left sided player showing plenty of class) and that not so good Colosimo isn't. All good from my end, although the Sas may disagree

Exciting to see how then it goes. Lars Jacobsen is by the way in the Danish squad of 27 players, but he is almost sure to be in the squad of 23.....cheers

If Grella can stay fit he'll make it won't he. That's a superb idea though isn't it taking four youth players to train with the squad!!

Yeah we've been doing it for a long time, just giving the young fellas a taste of the big time. Grella will definitely start- hell, Verbeek will play him on one leg, he is that good
