Juric fit again in time for Socceroos selection

Tomi Juric has returned to full fitness and is in line to be part of Ange Postecoglou’s squad for the World Cup qualifiers in late March.

Postecoglou is next week expected to name his Socceroos squad for the qualifiers against Tajikistan (March 24) and Jordan (March 29) in Adelaide and Sydney respectively.

Juric suffered a torn lateral ligament in his right knee during his Dutch club Roda JC’s winter training camp in Portugal in mid-January.

The 24-year-old was expected to miss four to six weeks due to the knee injury and FourFourTwo understands he’s now ready to resume playing.

Juric’s last competitive game was on December 20, when he scored from the penalty spot against Willem II.

He is expected to return to action in Sunday’s upcoming Eredivisie fixture against Vitesse, having been close to playing on the weekend against Heracles.

In further good news, compatriot Rostyn Griffiths was on the bench for Roda against Heracles on Sunday after a lay-off due to a hamstring injury.

Roda’s Aussie youngster Daniel De Silva is still out with a back injury.
