    Now before Marc comes in here, I don't know how good he is since I don't follow the Chinese league, but I guess he will partner Reinaldo, and if he is popular in China as they say he is, does that make him a big name?
    TBH i think he might find it hard to get in front of Simon Lynch and Ante Milicic, but it looks like they might have some decent depth up front, which they really didn't have last season at all.

    Only real surpise i see in the squad is no Paul Okon especially with Kevin Muscat and Steve Corica, then again he could be injuried i really followed the line ups of the side for the pre season cup.

    My predicted XI to play Kuwiat:

    Bolton
    Milligan-Valkanis-Fyfe-Lazaridis(c)
    Carney-Dilevski-Sarkies-Brosque
    Thompson-Griffith

    Okon said he was finished playing for the national side and didn't want to take the place of a young player.....like Muscat and Corica

    Dilevski won't play centrally.

    Anyway I like the squad they've picked

    Well it's at least the 3rd player signed by foreign clubs to be described as the Chinese Beckham.

    First there was Li Tie, then Dong, now this bloke!

    Yuning Zhang is older then the other two, so my guess is that he is first and then rest are copycats.

    I think we will go in ultra conservative i.e. starting the old heads and then bringing on Sarkies, Brosque & co when (hopefully) the game is won.

    -----------------------Bolton-----------------------
    -------Milligan----Valkanis-----Leijer--------
    Dilevski----Muscat----Corica---Lazaridis
    ---------Griffiths--------------Thompson------
    --------------------Petrovski---------------------

    Maybe a little too inexperienced at the back. Muscat is supposedly going to play more in the midfield as a holding mid for the Victory this season and with the lack of ball winning central midfielders in the squad I think he will start and boss, read break a few legs, in the centre.

    That was Vukovic.

    Leijer, Sarkies also trained with the squad and Milligan was of course in the 23.

    Vidmar just signed for Central Coast so perhaps he will be available as well.

    I just noticed that with Lebanon withdrawing the table looks like so.

    Code:
    Group D Table:
    
                P  W  D  L  GF GA GD Pts
    Australia   1   1   0   0   3   1    +2   3    
    Kuwait      1   0   1   0   0   0    0    1
    Bahrain     2   0   1   1   1   3    -2   1
    So if we beat Kuwait we qualify for the Asian Cup
