Socceroos squad: Full list, call-ups, debuts, Thomas Deng, Martin Boyle, Denis Genreau, Graham Arnold


A-LEAGUE star Thomas Deng and Scottish-born winger Martin Boyle have been handed their first ever call-ups for the Socceroos as Graham Arnold named a 25-man squad for the upcoming clash against Kuwait.

The pair are among a quartet of uncapped inclusions which also sees teen midfielder Denis Genreau, currently on loan at PEC Zwolle from Melbourne City, and Denmark-based attacker Awer Mabil in with a chance of securing their first international minutes.

Boyle, who plays alongside Mark Milligan and Jamie Maclaren at Hibernian, is yet to receive clearance to play for Australia, but has expressed a desire to pull on the green and gold – the nation of his father’s birth.

The squad will head to the Middle East for a training camp in the UAE next week before taking on Kuwait in Arnold’s first match in charge.
