Offical Australian Ratings in Other leagues Posted May 11, 2010 · Report reply Re: Offical Australian Ratings We had 8 players 25 or younger make the provisional squad of 31. All of them are Overseas, with Oar having recently signed with FC Utrecht. Federici will be the 2nd GK in the final squad and I would say Holland and Lowry are the only two out of those listed that don't have a good chance to make it. I would have liked to see Spiranovic in the squad too, but he didn't really have any playing time. This is what Verbeek said when he justified his selections. Adam Federici: Adam played every game in the last year with his team Reading. He was very solid. Tony Franken was there and saw him many times and we are very happy to have him with us also. James Holland: One of the youngest players in the selections is James Holland. I saw James more than several times in his club AZ. Central midfield at the moment, we all know him as an attacking midfielder. Very promising. He played his first big game against Celtic for the first team and he will be part of the selection for AZ next year so I thought it was a great opportunity for him to be part of this 30 players and maybe part of the last 23. Shane Lowry: Shane is on loan at Leeds United and played most of the games there. Left back and central defender, young and talented and it's always good to have a few players in your squad who can play in more positions. Very young still, but has grown up in English football. Tough player to play against, it's good to have him with us. Mark Milligan: Millsy is one of out biggest talented players. He was the captain of the Olympic team in China, after that played in China, plays in Japan at the moment and plays every game. He has played a lot of games in his league and Millsy can play central defender and right full back and even in the midfield. Tommy Oar: Left winger. Very, very promising. Got an opportunity from Brisbane Roar to play and develop and I think it's great for Australian football that we have a player like him, just 18 years old. He made a big impression in the few weeks he was in the Netherlands. He signed a contract there to play for a very interesting club. I'm sure Tommy can be a great player in the future. So it was good for him to be a part of the selection, especially as you don't get many left-footed players with his qualities. We all remember the game against Indonesia, but he still has to show that he is not only a talent, he is also a great player. Nikita Rukavytsya: Originally in the Netherlands, he's on loan in a Belgian club. He's very important over there, scores every week. They are in the playoffs at the moment so he still has two games to go. Nikita is one of the fastest players we have. He can play striker and he can play left winger and makes a good impression in Belgian football. So it's good to have him with us also. Dario Vidosic: Dario Vidosic is one of those players who changed clubs. He went from Nuremberg to Duisberg in the second Bundesliga. Dario is one of our most talented players. He can play in several positions. He even played right full back in the last two games and we all know that attacking-wise he is at his strongest. Very good player, very promising player. And it is good to have him with us. Rhys Williams: Rhys Williams has made unbelievable progress. A year ago he was not playing at all for Middlesbrough and he went on loan to Burnley. Played a lot of games there as a right full-back. He decided to part of the Socceroos and play for Australia and he did. He has played in Middlesbrough in every game, central midfield and he went very well over there. Tough, good football player, still very young, very promising and it's good to have him with us.
