SYDNEY (AP) — Mark Schwarzer, Lucas Neill and Mark Bresciano have been included in an experienced Australia squad for next month's friendly at Brazil.
Chelsea goalkeeper Schwarzer has 108 caps for Australia, while captain Neill, who plays for Japanese club Omiya Ardija, has 92.
Midfielder Bresciano, who plays with Al Gharafa in Qatar, will take part in his 70th international as the Socceroos prepare for next year's World Cup in Brazil with a Sept. 7 match against the host nation.
New York Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill (64 caps) was also included in a 22-man squad that contains only four domestic A-League players.
The teams last met at the 2006 World Cup when Brazil won 2-0 in a group match.
Australia squad: Mark Bresciano, Tim Cahill, Robert Cornthwaite, Mitchell Duke, James Holland, Brett Holman, Mile Jedinak, Josh Kennedy, Robbie Kruse, Mitchell Langerak, Ryan McGowan, Matt McKay, Mark Milligan, Lucas Neill (captain), Tommy Oar, Sasa Ognenovski, Tom Rogic, Mat Ryan, Mark Schwarzer, Archie Thompson, Luke Wilkshire, Rhys Williams.
