Mark Schwarzer has been named in the Australia squad to face Wales on August 10th.

The Fulham goalkeeper missed the Socceroos’ recent matches against New Zealand and Serbia in June after being rested by Australian coach Holger Osieck. He is expected to line up in goal at the Cardiff City Stadium for the first international meeting between the sides.

Osieck has recalled Tim Cahill and Lucas Neill for the friendly, but Harry Kewell has been left out due to concerns over his fitness.
