Australia head coach Ange Postecoglou has made several controversial decisions in his selection of the 23 men who will be on the roster for the Socceroos heading to Brazil.
Luke Wilkshire, who has 80 caps for Australia, has been eliminated from the squad, which will probably mean the end of his international career, while Josh Kennedy and Tom Rogic were ruled out due to injuries.

Goalkeepers: Mat Ryan (Club Brugge), Mitchell Langerak (Borussia Dortmund), Eugene Galekovic (Adelaide United).
