Burgess Starts For Australia
Tuesday, 26th Mar 2024 08:31

Blues centre-half Cameron Burgess has beeb named in the Australia starting line-up for their World Cup qualifier against Lebanon at the GIO Stadium in Canberra this morning (KO 8.45am).

A victory for the Socceroos, who currently top the group with the Lebanese now third, would seal a place in the third round of qualifying and also a place at the 2027 AFC Asian Cup in Saudi Arabia.

Burgess, 28, who will be winning his eighth cap, played the full 90 minutes as Australia beat the same opposition 2-0 on Thursday.

This match was set to be hosted by Lebanon but they ceded home advantage due to the political situation in the Middle East.

Burgess is likely to be considered a doubt for Town’s game at Blackburn Rovers on Friday given the travelling from Australia and time difference.
